    Membership Fees.

    Dear Wayne, In a youth led movement why does TSA levy a membership fee on YLs please? Adult Leaders and Network Members do not have a memb fee or county and district tithes.

    Because they are first and foremost, Explorer Scouts and I hope get to enjoy activities and the youth programme as well as being YLs. Nationally, as with all these things, we need to draw a line which is why that line was set at 18. In practice, Groups and Districts are better placed to pay the membership fee on behalf of YLs if that feel that appropriate. Nationally, it would be difficult for us to distinguish between varying levels of engagement of YLs in various roles.

    Many thanks,
    Wayne

    Thanks for the prompt reply Wayne. So if i understand correctly YL leading are levied a memb fee but networkers playing are not? nor are adult leaders. Seems unfair....
