The main goal is to help young people achieve their full physical, intellectual, social and spiritual potential as individuals, as responsible citizens and as Members of their local, national and international communities.
Even if we can’t solve all the problems in the world, we can help to make it a better place. Scouting makes a positive contribution to society by helping young people to develop as active members of the community:
- Who are self reliant
- Who are caring
- Who are responsible
- Who show commitment
Scouting works well when young people enjoy learning by working in partnership with adults.
They do this by:
- Taking part in a variety of activities and new experiences
- Exploring the outdoors
- Participating in teams
- Taking responsibility
Our method for giving young people the opportunity to learn by doing is called the Programme. The Programme is a continuous progression of training, activities and awards that covers everything that young people do in Scouting from the age of 6 to 25.
