What does a Young Leader have to do?

First thing is to choose a Group and Section to work in.  There are limits to the number of Young Leaders a Group / Section can have, so it’s not always possible to walk into a Group and take up a place.  If you are struggling to find a place or simply are not sure, contact us.  Somewhere there is a place just right for you.

Having found a place you will need to:

  • Register with the Sheffield Don’s Young Leader Unit, this is done by completing the Registration Form
  • Book onto a Module A ‘Prepare for take-off’ training session.  This must be completed within the first three months on becoming a Young Leader


What is the purpose of the Young Leader Unit?

Sheffield Don’s Young Leader Unit comprises all the young leaders in the Sheffield Don area. In addition there is a training team which consists of a number of experienced leaders who will help you to achieve your full potential.

The training team will:

  • Deliver the various modules
  • Provide support to you in the chosen section
  • Guide you through the 4 missions

All training usually takes place at Grenoside Scout and Guide HQ, just off Salt Box Lane, Grenoside.

Once you have registered as a Young Leader, we will contact you with the dates of the training courses.


To help you better understand your role, there are a few resourses  to help you.
