This can include planning activities that work towards badges, supporting young people to attend nights away experiences and ensuring the safety and support of all involved. You may be asked to step up in the absence of the Section Leader. The Assistant Section Leader will also attend and contribute to relevant Group.

  • Provide opportunities for young people to express their views on the programme and running on the Section, and that those views are taken into account.
  • Actively engage and support young people in their personal development, empowering them to make a positive contribution to society.

We want to offer young people the most interesting and diverse experiences possible, that incorporates outdoors, adventure, challenges, greater social responsibility and #SkillsForLife
