With over 18,000 youth and adult members from various cultural and religious backgrounds and with varying abilities, Scouts NSW is one of the largest and most successful youth organisations in the state.
At Scouts NSW, we believe in preparing young people with skills for life. We encourage young people to do more, learn more and be more. Each week, we help thousands of young people enjoy fun and adventure while developing the skills they need to succeed, now and in the future.
We’re talking about teamwork, leadership and resilience – skills that have helped Scouts become everything from teachers and adventurers to astronauts and Olympians. We deliver an essential service that empowers young people to be active, confident, responsible citizens of their local, national and international communities.
There is now a World Scout Committee, which provides unity amongst the National Associations, with a World Bureau operating from Geneva and independent national organizations in over 250 countries and territories.
For each generation of Scouts, the challenge has remained the same: to make a better world and have some fun along the way.
We’re incredibly proud of the positive impact we’ve made to millions of people over the past century. And our secret to success? We put the needs of young people first. Our youth-led, adult supported approach ensures our youth members are always at the forefront of our program.
