About Worth Valley Explorers
The Worth Valley Explorer Unit is a collaboration of the Cross Roads, Ingrow, Haworth and Oakworth Scout groups; working together to provide the next adventure in Scouting.
Scouting exists to actively engage and support young people in their personal development, empowering them to make a positive contribution to society.
Explorer Scouts experience life-changing opportunities and develop important skills by working towards badges and top awards. Explorer Scouts is the fourth section in the Scout Movement for 14 to 18-year-olds. In this section, young people enjoy the independence of planning their own incredible adventures with their Explorer Unit.
Worth Valley Explorers runs 20:00 - 21:30, every Wednesday at the Haworth Village Hall, usually during School Term Time.
One of the many exciting perks of the being an Explorer Scout is the opportunity to take part in the Young Leaders' Scheme. The Young Leaders' Scheme helps Explorer Scouts develop their leadership and communication skills. As a Young Leader, Explorer Scouts will volunteer to help run a Beaver, Cub or Scout section.
They will work with the Leader to plan the section’s Programme, run activities and share their Scouting skills with younger Scouts. When Explorers complete the Scheme, they receive the Young Leader Service Award which they can reference in university and job applications.
Explorers are encouraged to give back to Scouting by volunteering some of their time helping other sections (Predominantly Cubs & Beavers), not only does this help these sections by having more hands to help, it also increases our Explorers ability to:
Work as part of a team by working with Adult Volunteers
Develop leadership skills through running activities
Learn advanced problem solving by programme planning
Develop a sense of accomplishment through voluntary work
Develop communication skills
Grow a sense of responsibility
We want to actively engage and support young people in their personal development, empowering them to make a positive contribution to society.
One of the cornerstone ideologies of Worth Valley Explorers is our Explorers (from Haworth, Oakworth, Cross Roads & Ingrow) Volunteer their time at one of the other groups.
This benefits the group and the individual by:
Reducing the unknown factor of moving to a new section and encouraging Scouts from other groups to want to join Worth Valley Explorers
Developing the Explorers abilities to work in new situations and learn new skills, all adding to shaping a robust young adult.
Explorer Scouts experience life-changing opportunities and develop important skills by working towards badges and top awards. Our Explorer Scouts will be able to work towards their Chief Scout Platinum, Diamond, Explorer Belt and all the Duke of Edinburgh awards.
These awards are more recognised than ever for university and job applications and the experiences from earning these awards will stay with our members all through adulthood.
