On Saturday 5th September eight new Young Leaders undertook their Module A training (“Ready for Take Off”), which is the introductory module to the Scout Association’s Young Leader training scheme.
Six Young Leaders also completed Module I (“What Did They Say?”), which covers effective communications with young people, parents and fellow Leaders.
David Stokes, District Explorer Scout Commissioner and Assistant County Commissioner for Explorer Scouts in Durham Scout County said “Young Leaders in Blaydon are doing a fantastic job helping in the Beaver, Cub and Scout sections. They are making a real difference to the quality of programmes we’re delivering and are a key factor in the growth of Scouting in Blaydon District. It’s great to see young people choosing to give something back to the community and to see more of our new Explorer Scouts volunteering to be Young Leaders.”
Well done to all concerned on completing their latest modules and our thanks go to Young Leader Unit Leader Sarah and to fellow Leaders Ruth and Brandon for delivering the training and to 2nd Crawcrook Scout Group for the use of their H.Q. building.
