Young Leaders

Explorer Scout Young Leaders’ Scheme

Explorer Scout Young Leaders are Explorer Scouts who volunteer alongside adult leaders in a Beaver Colony, Cub Pack or Scout Troop. A valuable asset to any leadership team, ESYLs play an active role in the section, bringing a range of fresh ideas to the table, and acting as positive role models for the young people they work alongside.

Although the Scheme is usually taken on by Explorer Scouts looking for a new challenge, young people from outside Scouting can also participate if they are working towards their Duke of Edinburgh’s Awards or Queen’s Guide Award. They can do this by volunteering as non-members for a set period of time.
For example, if they are completing their Bronze Duke of Edinburgh’s Award, they can volunteer as a non-member for three to six months (the time required for the Bronze DofE volunteering section).

At Chorlton we greatly value the input and support of our young leaders, to discuss Young Leadership opportunities please email chorlton@mansouthscouts.org.uk

Put your phone down and what are you left with? Just teamwork, courage and the skills to succeed.’
