Calling all Scout Groups! Scouts Australia is looking for Groups across the country to be the ‘Pioneers’ of our new and exciting youth program. Over three years ago the YPR (Youth Program Review) team began reviewing how to keep Scouting relevant for 21st Century Australians. From our research, we surveyed all members across the movement nationwide, to see what they wanted in Scouting.
Three years down the track, we have taken a new perspective on Scouting, incorporating core Fundamentals that stem from new and contemporary ideas of our members as well as the original ethos of Scouting – getting outdoors, being adventurous and becoming a global citizen.
If you want to help lead us into the future, your Scout Group should consider applying as a Pioneer Scout Group. More information, and how to apply can be found at ypr.scouts.com.au/pioneers. Applications are closing at the end of September for some Branches!
