Many Youth Members feel that they are ready to take on leadership roles in their division. St John makes this possible by offering leadership courses for young membes with leadership ambitions. Becoming a Level 1 or 2 Youth Leader (in some places, these leaders are called Corporal sor Sergeants) is a great way of learning valuable new skills, helping others and taking responsibility. Ask you Leader about youth leadership programs!

There are always young members who stand out in St John— someone who has done something special, or gone the extra mile to excel at what they do.
