Young Leaders

If you’re between 14 and 18, you can develop your leadership skills while supporting a local unit as a Young Leader. Young Leaders have a valuable role in any unit, bringing fresh ideas and being a role model to younger girls.

The Young Leader qualification (YLQ) is designed to help you take an active, positive part in running a Rainbow, Brownie or Guide unit. It is open to anyone in guiding aged 14 to 18.

You can combine volunteering as a Young Leader with the service element of your Duke of Edinburgh’s award and being a Ranger.
