Qualified Scouts


This course is based on the Orthodox Church’s faith and offers leadership training for those who work in a Scout group or other kind of youth group and who would like to take on more responsibility for the leadership and management of such a group. We offer theoretical and practical training where participants will acquire the skills and knowledge needed to help run and lead a youth project. They will also learn how to become trusted and responsible Christian instructors. Participants are encouraged to relate their role as youth leaders to the role that youth groups play in wider civic society.
