Adult Leaders are the backbone of Scouting who care about the guidance and development of the young people in their Section as well as the community in which they live. They are responsible for helping to devise and deliver programs that support young people in reaching their potential.

Not only do Leaders help youth members develop valuable skills in an environment of responsible risk-taking, but they themselves develop a variety of skills in leadership, project management and event planning.

No prior experience is necessary to become an Adult Leader. All Leaders undergo training on all aspects of youth leadership, program planning, safety and other requirements. They are also given resources for program ideas to help them get started.
