Purpose of Scouting
We want to help you grow through your Scouting journey to achieve your full potential and make this world a better place. This is the purpose of Scouting.
We are part of a global movement with a common purpose. Scouting is more than just a place for young people to have fun, it’s about bringing out the best in our young people. Our purpose statement shows this very clearly.
This purpose is made up of three core parts:
Empowering youth to gain confidence, take ownership of their adventures, and be the best versions of themselves
Adventurous experiences that encourage young people to push their comfort zones, experience new things, and interact with the world around them
Making a positive difference in our communities; this includes at a personal, local, national, and global level
Everything we do in Scouting ties back to our purpose, and the programme is the facilitator of this.
