Leaders are the backbone of our movement. If you are looking for an adventure and the chance to help young people build a solid and positive foundation for their futures than you should become a Leader.
|Why should I become a leader?
Leaders are crucial to the success of the Scouting Movement. As a Leader you will have access to a wide variety of resources, an opportunity to give back to the community, and the experience to educate Youth Members in the values and skills most important for being a good citizen. As a Leader you will achieve satisfaction from helping Youth Members set and achieve their own goals, while being there to help them when they fail and encourage them to continue. However, you will find that your proudest achievement will be building a strong bond of trust and friendship with the Youth Members.

Rover Advisors work with adults aged 17 to 26 and are called Crew Advisors. Their responsibility is primarily to maintain close contact with the members of their Crew and to help and advise when needed. Crew Advisors act as friends and advisors rather than ‘leaders’.
“After I saw how much fun my child was having at Scouts I decided that I’d love to become a Leader. The courses are fully accredited, the programs are flexible to suit the needs of my Troop, and my Scouts are full of energy and willing to learn. I love the responsibility of being a Leader because it’s my chance to give back to my community while also releasing my inner adventurer.”
