Scouting: For Now and for the Future

What do young people value? What are they going to want in the future? We’re teaming up with the Youth Program Review  to work out what Scouting is now and what it needs to be in the future, and we need your help! Fill in our survey, pass it on to your friends, and for the first time ever do us an even bigger favour – ask your friends who aren’t in Scouting (whether they’ve left or never joined) to complete it too. This might take some persuading, but we know you’re up to it (and/or have a stash of fundraiser chocolates at the ready). This is your opportunity to shape what Scouting looks like in the future, and we want to make sure we hear from as many people as possible.

Check it out here.

Don’t forget to ask your friends, including those not in Scouting, to fill it in too!

  1. I don’t understand the question in the survey

    3. How important do you believe the below are important to young people currently?

    Does this mean the young people think these are important or that I think they are important for the young people? Because they are different.

    • Hey Viv

      It means what do you think young people value, what is important for them. Hope that clears it up!

      Thanks for doing the survey, and please let us know if there’s anything else you don’t understand 🙂

  2. My Vision for discussion
    – the Venturer section will be run by Rovers
    – Many leaders positions today will be advisors in the future
    – Every youth member will return service to Scouting for 3 years before they turn 50
    – All scout halls will be shared community facilities
    – All Metro groups will be 60+ and country 40+
    – Scouts will be represted on every government panel on youth issues in the country
    – The public image of scouting will create a waiting list to join
