Youth Programme

As Scouts, we believe in preparing young people with skills for life. We encourage young people to do more, learn more and be more.

Youth Programme

In Cheshire, we host over 10,000 young people within ten Districts made up of 148 Groups and 50 Units. These cover Cheshire East, Cheshire West, Chester, Halton and Warrington. As Scouts, we are proud to deliver active and balanced programmes for young people aged 6-25.

We have a dedicated Programme Team who represent and support the delivery of the youth programme in the County. This team is led by the Deputy County Commissioner (Programme) with Assistant County Commissioners offering collaboration, advice, guidance, events and practical support to leaders and Commissioners across all ten districts of Cheshire.
