Young Leaders


Young Leader Training 

All face-to-face training has currently been postponed and will resume when safe to do so. At this time take a look at the resources below.

To continue completing the training modules B-J: Take a look at the PDF version of our powerpoints at the bottom of this page. Then work through the fantastic online resources here - and send any evidence of completion to me (

Please note that YL's can continue progressing towards their mission badges, Saltire Awards and completing the volunteering section of the DofE award 'virtually'. It may even be a good time to get them more involved as they may have more experience using virtual communication tools and may be able to lead more of the programme (possibly with parents helping at home) if section leaders are still working and looking after/teaching children (note an adult leader must still be present).

In sections that have been doing virtual Scouting make sure YL's are fully involved (if they want to be). Sections that haven't been able to - see if the YL's could kickstart it. Make sure they know they can still progress to becoming adult leaders or Network members (and forms etc can be done once things are running again).
