District Youth Commissioner

District Youth Commissioner

Following the appointment of the UK Youth Commissioner (and team) there has been a high demand for similar roles to be created at local levels throughout the UK. At YouShape 2015 the concept of Local Youth Commissioners was discussed and an overwhelming amount of participants said they were in favour of them. Details of the outcomes of YouShape 2015 can be found in the report available from www.scouts.org.uk/youthcouncil

Local Youth Commissioners can bring a huge number of benefits to local Scouting and can help lead the work towards our Youth Shaped strategic objective. They are not the end product of the strategy; they are an enabler and champion for the Youth Shaped work locally.
