Young Leader

In 2010 William Thompson became the first Young Leader to achieve his YL Belt award with the 172.
Will had been a Beaver and a Cub with the 172 before moving to the other side of town and joining the 73rd Scouts.
When he graduated from the Scouts will decided to come back to the 172 to do young leader work in the Cubs while working through the new Young Leader section. The YL Belt is intended for young people of Explorer Scout age who are looking for something different and is an alternative to the DoE award route.
