County Youth Commissioner Advert

Youth Commissioner Vacancies!!!

I am delighted to announce the vacancies for Youth Commissioners within Greater London North East, in line with The Scout Association’s Vision 2018 to make Scouting a partnership between young people and adult.

Across the County we have seen a rise in the number of young people showing their enthusiasm for making a difference to the way they Scout. This is your chance to take on a youth commission role either at a County or a District level.

These roles offer young people a chance to focus the direction of local Scouting, and empower every young person in Greater London North East to get what they want out of Scouting. You will set a youth strategy and create a team which will help other young people to effect change in their local communities. This truly is an exciting time for our County and our Districts.

Applicants must be aged between 18 and 25 on 1st January 2016. You can nominate yourself, or someone who you think could fulfil the specifications for the role.

I wish you the best of luck in applying for the roles below.

Yours in Scouting, 

Paul Trayler

County Commissioner
