By 2023: 

  • adaptable, ready-made programmes, designed in partnership with adult volunteers and young people, will be available 

Why? 

We want more young people to achieve the top awards in Scouting because we know this will help prepare more young people with the skills they need to succeed in life and make a positive impact on society. 

A challenging and adventurous programme is crucial to what we do and we know more support is needed. 'Off the shelf' programmes will help Section Leaders, particularly those new to Scouting, to deliver a programme that will continue to attract and retain young people. 

Status 

This initiative will be prioritised in 2018/2019. 

Our focus will be on: 

  • providing ready-made programmes that focus on achieving the top award for each section 
  • reviewing and improving content for the Scout section (10-14) to make it more attractive for this age range 
  • supporting Districts to be able to provide adventurous activities 

Next steps for volunteers
