As a member of the District Leadership Team the District Youth Commissioner works in partnership with the District Commissioner and Chairperson of the District Executive Committee. The role is to ensure that young people from 6 – 25 years are involved and engaged in every decision that shapes their Scouting experience locally and to empower young people to share their ideas and have a meaningful voice in planning, implementing and reviewing their programme and opportunities.
This will be achieved by working in partnership with everyone in the district through a District Youth Forum and leasing closely with the County Youth Commissioner and the already established County Youth Forum. Along with this, your youth commissioners will sit on the District Executive Committee allowing young people’s voices to be heard right at the top of the district and sit on district event organising committees ensuring each event is what your young people need and want.
MEET YOUR COMMISSIONERS

“As the first youth commissioners of Doncaster Danum our aim is to make Doncaster Danum a more youth shaped District, we intend to do this by encouraging young people to have their say in decisions made in scouting, and supporting leaders in including your people in these decisions!”
Megan Duffield (Deputy District Youth Commissioner)
“My aim is to get young people involved and their voices heard within the district”
We look forward to further change within Doncaster District Scouts, keep an eye out for further opportunities with a youth forum in the near future
