Youth Involvement

Cambridgeshire Scouts’ Youth Commissioners are our future.

Filling our Youth Commissioner vacancies is a key priority for 2023. This will provide a strong Youth Leadership team to:

  • continue the growth of Youth-Shaped scouting,
  • facilitate young people working in partnership with volunteers in Scouting, allowing young people to speak up, be heard, and work towards something they are passionate about, and
  • advocate the “You shape” award

It is part of the Skills for Life strategy.

The Youth Leadership team will develop and grow through its members’ skills and knowledge enabling it to gain practical youth leadership skills, empower its peers and our adult volunteers. It is envisaged the team it will hold at least bi-yearly meetings with District Youth Leadership teams to share learning and develop a strong scouting family network.

Youth involvement builds on the excellent work of Cambridgeshire’s Young Leaders and provides a progression opportunity for them alongside Scout Network or adult leadership.
