Anja Johnston

I am one of the SHQ Commissioners for Youth Involvement. One of my main responsibilities is supporting the Scottish Youth Involvement Strategy, ensuring that all of our youth members have their voices heard at all levels of scouting in Scotland.  

Youth Involvement is about young people working in partnership with adults to shape their scouting journeys from section programme through to international adventures and top awards.

Through Scouts I have had the opportunity to complete the Young Leader scheme, which led to me being part of the SHQ team that reviewed the Young Leader Scheme in Scotland.  I have also been a member of the National Youth Advisory Group.

Outside of Scouting I have studied Health and Social Care and I hope to go on to train as a Paramedic.
