County Youth Commissioner


Giving our Young People a Voice

Durham Scouts are continuously developing as a youth led organisation and we are now looking for our next County Youth Commissioner to lead this work across the organisation.

Who Are We?

Durham County Scouts is a Scout County operating in the North-East Region of England with over 6,000 youth members and 1,700 adult leaders.

We operate across County Durham, Gateshead, South Tyneside, Sunderland and Darlington, supporting the delivery of Scouting in 105 Groups, 40 Explorer Scout Units and District based Scout Networks.

Who Are You?

We’re looking for someone who is passionate about giving young people a voice in their programme, activities and event planning, and who will be a member of the Senior Leadership Team in the county. More than that, we are looking for someone who can really give our youth members a say in the development of our strategy and who can take the lead in the development and delivery of our peer leadership programmes.

You will be aged between 18 and 25 at the time of appointment and eligible to be a charity trustee.


Locally, the County Youth Commissioner will be line managed and supported by the County Commissioner and supported by Scout Association headquarters as required.
