District Youth Team

Local Youth Commissioners bring a huge number of benefits to local Scouting and help lead the work towards our Youth Shaped strategic objective. They are not the end product of the strategy; they are an enabler and champion for the Youth Shaped work locally.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. Youth Commissioners work very closely with their relevant District Commissioner and Chair.

Jack Morgan – Deputy District Youth Commissioner

Sophie Thorp – Deputy District Youth Commissioner

Hannah Thompson – Deputy District Youth Commissioner

The more young people are involved in shaping their Scouting experiences the more they will get out of it, and the more likely they are to stay, do well and achieve their top awards. 

Our new strategy; Skills for Life lays out a plan for the next five years to 2023 so that we can support even more adults and young people as we develop Scouting’s future together. With this plan we’re building on the successes of our last plan Scouting for all, by continuing to focus on growth, inclusion, youth shaped Scouting and community impact.

Involving young people in decision making is essential for our governance structures to stay informed and responsive to the fast-paced changes facing young people in the 21st Century. By encouraging a mixture of experiences and ages on our executive committees and District/County teams, we are more likely to encourage healthy debate and make better decisions which are relevant to the lives of young people in today’s society.

There are four themes of youth shaped Scouting:
•    Programme
•    Leadership (Including transition at 18 years)
•    Management 
•    Governance

Tynemouth District Youth Commissioner Team will have its own strategic plan to work towards along with the District and National plan using the four themes above:
