Social leaders are an essential and core part of the leadership team. You will lead on delivering youth development activities, as well as provide pastoral care and behavioural support to young people on expedition.
The role of a Social leader is to lead a “fire” (group) of approximately 12 Explorers (participants) in partnership with one or two other leaders to guide, support and celebrate the achievements of young people during UK training and their expedition.
Social leaders will have significant experience carrying out intensive work with young people and are able to empower and support young people through a transformative personal development journey on expedition.
