As our young people grow in St John so does their skill set. St John has developed fun, challenging and exciting leadership programmes that have been designed to develop and enhance our young peoples leadership abilities.  It’s not uncommon to see our young people stepping up and taking charge within their division and at local and regional camps and events. There are three stages of leadership development which are listed below.

Leadership training is continual and ongoing. All of our NCO’s are supported and encouraged by the adult Divisional Leadership Team.
