District Youth Commissioner Search

Could you be our next District Youth Commissioner?

Young people working in partnership with adults in Scouting has always been a unique aspect of Scouting, right from the very beginning. Baden-Powell was a huge advocate of learning by doing. This included building leadership and development skills in young people through active participation in the delivery of their own Scouting journey.

Youth Shaped Scouting not only improves the way we Scout, but also develops the skills and experiences of the young people involved. Learning to lead, speak up and be heard, and work towards improving something you are passionate about are all incredible learning experiences, for Beavers right the way through to our Network members.

As District Youth Commissioner, you will champion, encourage and lead the work to ensure that, by 2023, Scouting in the District is shaped by young people in partnership with adults. This will be achieved by working in partnership and collaboration with the District Commissioners, District Chair, Group Scout Leaders and wider District Team.
