Young Leaders

ylWelcome to West Yorkshire Scouts Young Leaders Scheme. You might not realise it yet, but this scheme is probably the most integral part of our future development… by delivering the Young Leader Scheme successfully across our Districts we are developing the leaders of the future.

The Scheme is designed to be delivered at District level, however in West Yorkshire, we have a steering committee and a training and support team who are committed to supporting you wherever we can… this includes running regular training weekends (4 per year) and producing resources and materials to help delivery of the modules and missions.
