Young Leaders

Young Leaders

The Young Leaders’ Scheme is just one of the exciting programme elements in the Explorer Scout section. They are Explorer Scouts who choose to help as part of the leadership team in another section.

The Young Leaders’ Scheme helps Explorer Scouts to develop and grow as individuals. It allows them to make a valuable contribution to their community and give service to others. The scheme also helps them fulfill the service elements of their DofE awards.

The Young Leader Scheme is also Externally Recognized by the Institute of Leadership and Management – Development Programme, so if Registered with them when YL’s complete all the Modules and Missions they receive a Certificate from the ILM which looks great on A CV.

The Gloucester Young Leaders unit Meet on the 3rd Monday of each Month at Murray Hall,if your an Explorer Scout and want to become a Young Leader, Register with us and we will Be in Touch

Duke of Edinburgh’s Volunteering

Becoming part of the young leaders unit is a great way to complete your DofE Volunteering as we Guide you through all of your training and support you all the way.

Whilst undertaking the volunteering section of the DofE it is mandatory to undertake appropriate training. All participants under 18 must complete module A of the young leader scheme, and an additional 2 hours of training, at each level of the DofE programme.


As part of the young leaders’ scheme there are four missions to be completed alongside the eleven modules.

These missions are designed to allow the young leaders to put the learning from the modules into practice. By doing so, they will gain in confidence and become an integral part of the leadership team within their section and group.

Young Leader Belt Buckle

Once you have completed all your modules and missions you are then awarded and become entitled to wear the young leaders belt buckle.
