Sectional Leaders

Young people need leadership. They need the guidance of informed and caring adults to develop self-reliance, initiative and responsibility.  Leaders are always required for all Sections of the Scouting Movement.

The worldwide Scout Movement offers this guidance through our Leaders, a team of dedicated, self-motivated individuals who take the time and the interest to help on a voluntary basis.

If you care about the future generation, if you want to contribute, to learn about yourself and other people and want to have fun doing it, then we want you to join us as a Leader.

Prior experience in Scouting is not necessary. Full adult training appropriate to the age group in which you are interested is available.

The rewards of Scouting leadership are lasting and truly beneficial. You’ll help guide young members along a memorable path which will lead them to become valued citizens of our community. Best of all, you’ll experience a new dimension of fun and adventure while doing it.
