Youth Shaped Scouting improves the way we Scout and also the young people involved.
Learning to speak up, be heard and work towards improving something is a key life skill. We encourage and support all our members to do this. From the youngest Beaver to our eldest Network member via our #SkillsForLife philosophy.
We want young people to make decisions and influence their own scouting experience –
- share their ideas
- learn from and teach each other and adults
- take part in decision making
- assist with planning the programme, including activities and camps
- become more involved in all aspects of Scouting.
