This team lead the district youth shape strategy and chair the youth forum. They mirror the Senior Leadership Team but commission projects and initiatives of their own.

Jake Vickery

District Youth Commissioner

The District Youth Commissioner provides young people in the district a voice at a senior level. Ensuring that 6 – 25 year olds are involved and engaged in every decision that shapes their Scouting experience.

Jake was formerly an Explorer Scout at Aquila ESU and before turning 18, a young leader at 8th Widnes. Jake has a real passion about empowering young people to shape their Scout experience and is really looking forward to the exciting work he has planned in the months to come. One of the things Jake is most excited about is building a robust Youth Forum and Youth Shape team. The Youth Shape team will visit groups to help run forums and activities and commission their own projects. Jake is looking forward to creating project plans and following them through to completion.
