If you want to get stuck in and help run a unit, and are between the ages of 14 and 16, then the Young Leader Qualification (YLQ) is just the thing for you! Develop your leadership skills in a rewarding and fun way by gaining the YLQ.

The Qualification consists of two modules:

  • Module 1 – Your role in the programme
    This helps develop your leadership and programme-planning skills to enable you to give the girls a good and fun experience of guiding.
  • Module 2 – Your role in Girlguiding UK
    This develops your understanding of the Promise and gets you involved with local guiding to share your skills and learn from others.

You’ll find all the information you need to start your Young Leader Qualification on the Senior Section CD available from Trading Service on order code 6042.

During your qualification you will be supported by the Leader of the unit you help to run, with extra support available from your Senior Section Leader or Young Leader Leader. You will also have a supporter of your choice to help you through the qualification.

You can remain a Young Leader up to the age of 18. If you would like to take your leadership role further then at 16 you can begin the adult Leadership Qualification. Everything you do on the Young Leader Qualification will count towards the Leadership Qualification, which means you’ll have a real head start!
