Scouts throughout the world engage with their local communities each and every day. By virtue of the fact that Scouts is a community organisation, this gives us a unique position to engage with community areas that may not otherwise be engaged. This reports provides suggestions to Scouts Australia on how to further engage Scouts in different community events and activities.
The information compiled in this report comes from two surveys distributed by the NYC. The first survey was by invitation to those that had completed events that engaged the community, whether on a local or global scale. The participants in this survey contacted Frankston Patrol by email and were then sent the survey to complete. This survey was answered by 5 participants. Once this survey closed the results were analysed and questions formed for the second survey which would be distributed to the general Scouting public. The second survey was distributed by social media and other electronic methods. This survey was answered by 270 respondents.
