Running an Explorer Unit
Week by week, thousands of ordinary people show up at Explorer meetings to empower young people to learn new skills, make new friends and learn to stand on their own two feet. No two weeks are the same, but the impact you make is always great.
Running your Unit
Getting to grips with the basics? We’ve put together everything you need to keep your section running smoothly.
Programme planning for Explorers
Our new tool is a one-stop programme planning shop. You can use it to get organised and get going.
Welcoming Explorers and moving on
Whether you’re welcoming the shyest of new Scouts, or need help preparing the eldest for leadership roles or Network, we’ve got you covered.
Recruiting Volunteers for Explorers
We have tools, tips and templates to help you with the recruitment of volunteers for your Explorer Unit.
The YouShape Award makes it even easier to embed being youth shaped into your programme. At the same time, it’ll help young people work with their volunteers to learn leadership skills that they’ll use for the rest of their lives.
There's lot of resources now available to support volunteers to deliver amazing programmes, here’s a list of places to find information and things you could try.
