Explorers would not be possible without the Explorers themselves however it also needs directions, encouragement, enthusiasm, dedication, direction and drive all these things are achieved by a strong leadership team that provide the necessary skills and knowledge to help Explorers achieve the most out of scouting.

Do you know someone who would make a great leader or is it you who could inspire and change lives? There always room for new leaders. Join the big adventure and start your scouting journey with Hudson Explorer Scout Unit.
With the support, direction and guidance of the Unit leaders, Explorer Scouts are encouraged to lead themselves, design their own programme and work towards the top awards that Scouting offers.
Are you most at home in a room full of people, helping bring out the best in them? Good. Then you’ll do nicely as a volunteer in Hudson Explorers. We promise to support you every step of the way, and no you don’t need to have been a Cub or a Scout.
As long as you are over 18 years of age, you can help out as an adult volunteer in Scouting. There is no upper age limit for adult volunteers. If you are aged between 14-18, there is the option of becoming a Young Leader.
We have over 30,000 young people on waiting lists in the UK due to the lack of adult volunteers. If more adults helped out this would take the burden off our current volunteers and allow more young people to experience the adventure of Scouting. More adults would mean more young people could join Scouting, Groups could be smaller or new Groups could even open. We always welcome any help from adults.

Explorer Scout Young Leader ESYLs are Explorer Scouts who volunteer alongside adult leaders in a Beaver Colony, Cub Pack or Scout Troop. A valuable asset to any leadership team, ESYLs play an active role in the section, bringing a range of fresh ideas to the table, and acting as positive role models for the young people they work alongside.
By joining Hundson ESU we will give you the training needed to become an ESYL.
