1st Birthday of the Scouts Australia Educational Proposal

by YPR Team on June 30th, 2017

This time last year, we released the Scouts Australia Educational Proposal! If you haven’t had a chance to review, keep reading to find out more!

Worldwide, Scouting is an educational movement of young people, supported by adults. The Educational Proposal enables Scouts Australia to explain to the Australian Community how the Scout Youth Program meets the developmental needs of young people in Australian Society, in accordance with the PurposePrinciples and Method of the Movement, and in line with the Mission of Scouting.

The Educational Proposal describes how our non-formal educational method, the Scout Method, is complementary to formal education. And, it sets the scene for the context in which we operate, including describing the needs, desires, opportunities, and challenges for young Australians.

The audience for this document is mainly an external one. Elements might be used to support proposals to external bodies, such as governments and businesses, or for organisations we are looking to partner with.

It also acts as a reference document for adult training, particularly as new adults are recruited into Scouting roles. It is important that all adults understand the importance of offering an attractive program, and be committed to a style of educational relationship based on the Scout Method.

This document is a work in progress. It will evolve over the journey of the YPR.

    This is a massive move away from the traditions, principles an values of Scouting, my Venturer Unit is not comfortable with the proposed changes and disappointed that even though I requested another opportunity for a workshop in the Western Region they just couldn’t do it.
