Scouts is Changing
Scouts Australia Youth Program
The Youth Program is on an adventurous journey.
Ongoing work to define how Scouting can deliver a fun, challenging, adventurous and inclusive youth program, that is based on the fundamentals of Scouting, designed to meet the needs of young people in 21st century Australia. Through extensive consultation on a variety of topics, the Youth Program is shaping what the future of Scouting could look like.
The work so far has been on developing a “one program” approach that is a continuous and consistent journey through Scouting, from our youngest section to the oldest. We’ve taken a refreshed look at the personal development journey that Scouts will experience, and how we can ensure that participation in the Scouting program will ensure they become responsible citizens as members of their local, national and international communities.
2019 begins a period of exciting change for Scout Groups across the country as the new program is rolled out. Scouts will begin to engage practically with a new youth program, and will be challenged by the new opportunities for personal development.
