Young leaders enjoy working with younger members while developing skills in leadership, communication and team working.
Young leaders are members of Girlguiding, aged 14 to 18 who volunteer with a Rainbow, Brownie or Guide unit. They could be working towards their Young leader qualification (YLQ) or the Leadership qualification (LQ), for which they are eligible from the age of 16. They may also be Rangers and undertake some of the opportunities available for Rangers.
Having a young leader as part of any leadership team is a great asset. For example, they can contribute new ideas and share skills and also bridge the gap between leaders and the girls. Please note that the Young Leader qualification is not compulsory. Young leaders may prefer to just help out with unit meetings as part of the leadership team.
You can find out more about Young Leaders (14-18) on the Girlguiding website.
