How do you define "youth" in your question? Under 20? Under 25? Under 30?

The Guides and Scouts of Finland recently agreed on our National Board that if 30% of participants in a National Venture or Rover Scout Event support a subject by creating a petition on the Event, then that subject is obliged to be handled by the National Board or the proper sub-committee that fits the subject.

At my NSO (Germany) you are 18+ to get involved to higher leadership.
