It's been a big year for Explorers. We've relaunched and grown the unit, delivered a programme of weekly zoom activities and are continuing to recruit new volunteers into the team.
One of the things we set out to achieve was to make sure that young people in Scouts were able to achieve their DofE awards with us. This year, we'll be opening up this opportunity as part of our new explorers programme.
That's right! We're now offering the entire DofE awards programme!
Young people who are members of Explorers can take part in their Bronze, Silver and Gold DofE awards with us. By taking part, young people build on a huge range of practical and character skills – like resilience, problem-solving, team-working and drive – and come out the other side with a stronger sense of self (and something really brilliant to put on their CV, or talk about in their uni and job applications).
Plus, they'll also be working towards their scouts top awards at the same time! Here's a video introducing the programme:
