Supporting delivery of programs for Victorian youth
State Quartermaster Team

Some of them will be familiar, others you may never have come in contact with. These autonomous sections come under the umbrella of “State Quartermaster Team”
Purpose of the State Quartermaster :
To support youth-section leaders and their Scouting program
