LEADING BY EXAMPLE
Posted on 21 February 2017
A fantastic weekend of training has been held for Young Leaders in West Region.
The training weekend at Lochgoilhead, was run by Karen Fryer and her team, financially supported by Scottish Scouts Youth in the Lead funding.
A total of 40 Explorers from across the Region worked towards the Young Leader belt. The Saturday morning was team building exercises and training sessions covering programme planning, leadership styles, communication, learning through games and much more.
Regional Commissioner Stephen Allan said: “This training was an excellent way to prepare our young people to be leaders in the movement.
“I visited them during the training and it was great to meet such a dedicated and enthusiastic group of Explorers and Leaders. With this fantastic training, I am sure our new Young Leaders will inspire the youth members within their Sections with the skills they learned over the weekend.
“The future of the movement is in great shape with our Young Leaders in partnership with our instructors and Section Leaders across the Region. A huge thank you to Karen and the team for such an inspirational weekend.”
