Young Leader Training

Although many Districts run their own Young Leader training, not every District provides a full range of modules and some Young Leaders like to cover a wide range of modules early in their training and enjoy a residential setting. That's why Durham Scout County organises and runs Young Leader Training weekends and Module K 'First Aid Masterclasses'.

Details of forthcoming young leader training are below.
