The Youth Programme is at the heart of Scouting. A high-quality, engaging and contemporary programme gives NSOs the means to sustain and grow their membership, as well as to motivate and inspire their adult volunteers. This is why it is so important to ensure the Youth Programmes of our NSOs worldwide meet the needs of young people in their local contexts and offer them opportunities to develop and grow as individuals.
Adults in Scouting
Adult volunteers are the backbone of the Scout movement. Their dedication and commitment have enabled millions of young people worldwide to experience Scouting and play a constructive role in their communities. Providing support in recruiting, onboarding, training volunteers and their “on the job” development is the vital function of the Adults in Scouting Life Cycle.
