Could you be the next County Youth Commissioner?

Date: 24th Mar 2022 Author: West Mercia Scouts

As a 18-25 year old connected to West Mercia Scout County, I want to see if you’re interested in becoming the County Youth Commissioner from May.

Put simply the CYC represents the young people of West Mercia on a County level, working alongside the County Commissioner as a key part of the leadership team. You’d be able to support events, create your own projects and support Districts to ensure young people are at the heart of everything we do.

A vacancy pack and application/nomination form can be found at this link: with a closing date of 23rd April. You can apply for yourself and/or be nominated by someone else.

I have enjoyed my time as CYC, it’s a very flexible way to contribute to Scouts alongside your studies or career – and lots can be done remotely if you’re living away from West Mercia.

I’d really encourage you to give it a go or get in touch with me to ask any questions you have.


Put your phone down and what are you left with? Just teamwork, courage and the skills to succeed.’
