Explorer Scouts & Young Leaders (14 – 18)

8th Worcester Explorer Unit target opening January 2022 – Enquire NOW

The next step on from Scouts, Explorers are more independent and usually plan and organise most of their own activities themselves with only guiding input from Leaders. The skills of independence, resilience, tenacity come through as Explorers reach towards adulthood, getting more advanced at activities and going on longer expeditions and trips abroad.

We have opened a fantastic new Explorer Den at 8th Worcester as an exciting space for Explorers and Network from across Worcester.

If you are interested in joining Explorers at 8th Worcester, or are interested in joining as a Unit Leader please register your interest below

Joining us as a Young Leader with Beavers, Cubs or Scouts

Young Leaders are Explorer Scouts 14 -18 who volunteer alongside adult leaders. They 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. Being closer in age than adults they often get directly involved in running games and activities.

Often young leaders are working towards their Duke of Edinburgh’s Awards and may only want to volunteer for a set period of time. Sometimes individuals may want to work in childcare, teaching or youth work later in life and can gain valuable CV building experience. Some basic training is mandatory but there is an optional YL training Scheme which contains 11 modules giving all the skills and knowledge to be successful in their role.

Each of our sections can have up to 3 Young Leaders and we will be happy to discuss potential roles. Just let us know.

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