The Missions

As part of the Young Leaders' Scheme there are four missions to be completed alongside the 11 modules.

The four missions are designed to allow the Young Leaders to put the learning from the modules into practice. By doing so, they will gain in confidence and become an integral part of the leadership team within their Section and Group.

Programme Planning Tool

Information for Explorer Scout Young Leaders

With a bank of over 500 activities to support the Cub and Beaver Scout programmes, this tool can help Leaders and Explorer Scout Young Leaders to plan their terms and sessions with goals designed to help our young members earn badges and achieve awards.

This is an additional tool that you can promote during the delivery of module H –
Programme Planning as an aid for Explorer Scout Young Leaders. This guide aims to help
prepare you for any questions regarding its use, and to familiarise yourself with the workings of the tool, so that you are ready to encourage and guide others to use it themselves.

The tool can also be really useful for Explorer Scout Young Leader Missions
