New explorer programme in Wembley offers exciting opportunities for young people

Brent Scouts have announced an exciting opportunity for young people aged 14 to 18 to join the new 7th Wembley Explorer Unit.

Every Monday, from 7:30pm to 9pm, the Explorer Scouts gather in Wembley, offering a chance for local teens to develop skills for life and be a part of something special.

Alongside new friends, Explorers will develop skills for life that contribute to a stronger and happier future. According to a study from the University of Edinburgh, young people who participated in similar organisations were around 35 percent more likely to report excellent health at age 50 compared to their peers.

The program is open to all genders, races, and backgrounds. Regardless of your physical ability, there’s a Scout adventure out there waiting for you.

Chief Scout Bear Grylls believes that “young people need a friendly, safe, and supportive place to discover their talents”, stating, “Now more than ever, our young people need the confidence and encouragement that Scouting gives.”

The Scouts encourage young people to “try more, see more, do more” within the Explorers unit. The group provides a platform for young people to dream big, find their place in the world, and create memories that will be cherished for a lifetime. Whether you’re white-water rafting or taking part in community projects, Explorers have the freedom to choose their adventures.

Finn, a member of the 7th Wembley Explorer Unit, says, ‘I really like the survival skills, the camping, and the firelighting. Joining Scouts is the best thing we’ve done. I’d never get to do this stuff at school.’

For those eager to join the Explorer unit and experience a local adventure, more information can be obtained by reaching out to info@brentscouts.org.uk.
