Young Leaders are aged 14-18 and are valued members of the leadership teams in many Scout groups in Epsom and Ewell.

The young leaders are usually from our Explorer Scout section but occasionally Young Leaders are young people who come in from schools to do volunteering. 

It is still a requirement for them to do training for both The Scouts and DofE requirements. This training must include Module A plus one other training module for Bronze during their time with a section. 

Those from schools are also required to do two more training modules for each level of the DofE if they wish to volunteer. 

For ALL young leaders, it is essential that Module A is completed before they start volunteering (or within 3 months of starting the role if necessary. 

New young leaders are required to complete the following application form:

This should then be submitted to Dave Pfeiffer, District YL Training Co-ordinator – davepf45@gmail.com
