Group Scout Leader

The role of Group Scout Leader (GSL), is interesting, challenging, exciting and rewarding!

All Scout Groups need a Group Scout Leader (GSL), in fact they are key to the success of the Group.

Supporting and managing the adult leadership team, ensuring that they have the resources

needed to run their sections, making sure that the local community knows about the Group and

that the Sections provide a warm welcome to everyone who wants to be involved are the main

responsibilities of the role.

Additionally, the Group Scout Leader works in partnership with the Group Chairman and together

they lead the Group Executive Committee, the board of trustees that run the Scout Group.

Great Scouting happens at Group level so the GSL is vital in ensuring that the best possible

Scouting is available for young people in the area.

Time commitment:

The time commitment is flexible and depends on the situation of the Scout Group. There is an

expectation that you will be able to attend meetings of the Group Executive Committee (4 to 6 a

year), District GSL meetings (3 a year), and keep in contact with the adult in each section of the

Group, as appropriate
