Deben District Scouts

Before a Young Leader starts:

  1. Ensure they provide relevant personal details to the Section Leader in the same way as all other young members
  2. Ensure there is a  Placement Agreement form that has been signed by everyone involved
  3. Inform District Explorer Scout Administrator (DESA) of:
    1. their name
    2. their contact details
    3. where they are helping
    4. when they will stop / turn 18
    5. if they are doing Service for an award
    6. if they are in another Explorer Unit

Later inform the DESA:

    1. when they have completed Module A
    2. you must later inform the DESA when they stop helping

In the first 3 months: 

  1. Your Group is required to provide induction training MODULE A
  2. This should be completed as early as possible because it includes important information
  3. Any Leader may deliver this badge work
  4. If you cannot find a way to provide it, you must stop inviting Young Leaders to help 

Explorer Young Leaders: 

  1. Headquarters recommends  up to three Young Leaders per Section
  2. Young Leaders are supposed to follow the young leader’s programme of badgework  and a paper version is available for £8 from click here 
  3. Any Leader may deliver this, however if at any time you find that you need advice about how to deal with this age group, you are encouraged to seek assistance from any Explorer Leader in the District
  4. You will need to keep the DESA updated with completed badge work
  5. Information to give Young Leaders is at click here

There is presently no Explorer Leader for the Young Leader Unit, hence the above situation, which will continue until someone recruits a new volunteer
