Scouting makes TV debut


The Discovery Channel premiered Scouting’s first ever national TV ad on 17 July. The advert promotes our need for more volunteers in Scouting.

The advert also aired on Discovery’s Animal Planet TV channel, and will continue to be broadcast by Discovery's network of channels throughout the next few weeks.

Make a difference

The 30-second advert has been created as part of our partnership with Discovery and highlights how adults can make a difference to young people’s lives by volunteering.

There are currently 33,000 young people on the waiting list to join Scouting. Discovery and The Scout Association have now joined forces to recruit new leaders. So if you're ready to inspire the younger generation, guide them on real fun-filled adventure, then why not become a volunteer for the Scouts.

There are a variety of ways to join in and opportunities to volunteer with us are flexible, so simply visit our join pages to find out more

Discover Scouting

Discovery is one of the most famous TV brands in the world; over 3.7 million people tune into one of Discovery's 12 channels in the UK on a daily basis.

With a mutual love of the outdoors, both Discovery and the Scouts believe that we can challenge people through adventure and exploring the world around them. Our partnership started through the Scout Pioneer Activity Badge, which is sponsored by Discovery and aims to inspire young people to learn by doing.
