Aged between 14 and 18? Do you enjoy a challenge? Why not become a Young Leader with Horsham District Scouts?
The Young Leader scheme is a challenging yet rewarding scheme that can be completed during your time at Explorers. This scheme can be completed in as little as 18 months and is an excellent way to prepare yourself for becoming an Adult Leader or learning the basics of leading a team.
Broken up in to 11 training modules and 4 evidence-based “missions” which are completed over your time as a Young Leader to achieve a set of 5 badges and a belt buckle to wear with pride.
Each training module runs several times a year. The next wave of modules starts on 14 Nov 2020. A full set of dates and times are kept updated below. You can join in the training at any time of year.
Never been a scout before? This scheme can be used for personal development or the volunteering section of your DofE awards, whether it is 3, 6 or 12 months or even 4 years! Anyone is welcome this opportunity should not pass you up.
Please contact us on firstname.lastname@example.org to register your interest.
Training for new and existing Young Leaders – don’t miss out on completing this Award
In a bid to make it easier for all, we have put together a list of training dates for the coming year (up to July). We will cover all of the modules twice – allowing those who need to compete their modules and those who are just starting access to them as well.
We have spread dates and times between various evenings and weekends to enable everyone to work around other commitments.
New/not already registered Young Leaders – just complete a google form to give us the information we need to get you started with the training (and matched with a section who need Young Leader support if not already allocated).

For the first Modules next weekend please use the link below to book for the zoom details on Eventbrite (we will be looking at using this going forward as well so please do keep an eye out for these):
Adult Leaders – Share your experience – If anyone is interested with helping with the delivery of the scheme, please do let me know even if it is only for one or two of the modules that you may have some knowledge about. “Meeting” a variety of local scouting faces and hearing a range of experience really helps young leaders gain a wider breadth of knowledge.
Section Leaders – If your section could do with Young Leaders, please let us know so we can try help. Just post on the Young Leader Facebook page with the details below to be able to find new Young Leaders:
