As Scouts, we believe in preparing young people with skills for life.
We encourage young people to do more, learn more and be more. Each week, we help over 460,000 young people aged 6-25 enjoy fun and adventure while developing the skills they need to succeed, now and in the future.
We’re talking about teamwork, leadership and resilience – skills that have helped Scouts become everything from teachers and social workers to astronauts and Olympians. We help young people develop and improve key life skills.
We believe in bringing people together. We celebrate diversity and stand against intolerance, always. We’re part of a worldwide movement, creating stronger communities and inspiring positive futures.
THE PURPOSE OF SCOUTING
Scouting exists to actively engage and support young people in their personal development, empowering them to make a positive contribution to society.
THE SCOUT METHOD
Scouting takes place when young people, in partnership with adults, work together based on the values of Scouting and:
enjoy what they are doing and have fun;
take part in activities indoors and outdoors;
learn by doing;
share in spiritual reflection;
take responsibility and make choices;
undertake new and challenging activities; and
make and live by their Promise.
