Worldwide, Scouting provides one program. It varies slightly between National Scout Organisations but every Scout Organisation around the world must strive to develop a youth program, based on the fundamental principles of Scouting that is attractive to and meets the needs of young people in their country.
Remaining relevant in a rapidly changing and evolving world requires Scouts Australia to regularly review the program provided to its youth members. For many years we have cycled through a review of each section of Scouting to ensure its relevance but it has been 40 years since we have reflected on our whole program from 6 – 25 years of age.
It is now time to look at the totality of our youth program and that Australian Scouting meets the needs of our youth members, the wider community and our Mission Statement for the next 20 years.
