Ben Galloway, Cramond Explorer Scout Unit, YL with 82nd Craigalmond Cubs
Daniel Kleinjan, Douglas Brown Explorer Scout Unit, YL with 10th Craigalmond Yukon Beavers
Congratulations to Ben and Daniel – two Explorer Scouts from Craigalmond District who have recently received one of Scouting’s top awards – The Young Leader Belt – which is awarded on completing 13 modules of accredited leadership and first aid training, as well as 4 practical assignments ( called missions ) while volunteering with a local Beaver, Cub or Scout section.
The Beavers, Cubs and Scouts benefit greatly from the enthusiasm, experience and commitment of Young Leaders like Daniel and Ben, while the Young Leaders gain valuable skills for life in leadership, communication, planning, teamwork and demonstrating they are willing to take on responsibility as a leader and work as part of a team. These will serve them well in the future – whether that’s in education, employment, personal life or in many cases as future adult volunteers with Scouts.
Ben has been volunteering with the 82nd Craigalmond Cubs as well as being a member of the Cramond Explorer Scout Unit, while Daniel is a member of the Douglas Brown Explorer Scout Unit and Young Leader on placement with the 10th Craigalmond Yukon Beavers.
Ben and Daniel recently attended presentations from Craigalmond District Commissioner Mark Hesketh and Craigalmond District Explorer Scout Commissioner David Newton to recognise their success, thanks for their many hours as volunteers and the real difference they have made to the Beavers and Cubs in the District.
