Youshape 2016 Blog

Last weekend's national #YouShape event took place in Doncaster. Hundreds of young people came together to discuss ways in which they can shape their experience at Scouts. We've gathered together some of the best bits from the weekend!

On Saturday morning, the event was live-streamed. You can see some of the highlights in this video.

Over the weekend, young people took part in focus groups discussing a large number of issues on which they could take action. These included Youth Commissioners, inclusivity, adventure, iternational, digital, governance, Young Leaders, Youth Forums, speaking up, retention, Network and Communications.

On social media, we reached over 1,000,000 people with over 4,000 Tweets sent using the hashtag #YouShape, spreading the word about what was happening in Doncaster. Make sure you take a look at our Twitter and Instagram pages to catch up!
