Written by Ian Mitchell   

At Genesis Scouts we actively promote and develop our young leaders as much as we do our Scouts. to this end we expect each young leader to take on a dedicated role within the troop leadership team, as well as general tasks. Currently we have the following roles a young leader can undertake:

  • Tuckshop Manager
  • Badge Manager
  • Troop Quarter Master

Other roles can be created as and when required. As well as undertaking their dedicated role from the list above, young leaders are expected to:

  • Collectively organise games for the Scouts as required
  • Undertake the running of a session once or twice a term
  • Organise a group wide event (not on a normal Scout night) at least once a year

The following provides more detail on what each role involves.
