What can we learn in Scouts?

Scouting’s values are just as relevant today in helping children and young people grow to their full potential as they were in 1908.

Scouting develops and empowers youth by gaining life skills and a value system, based on the Scout Promise and Law, building a better world and playing a constructive role in society. Through fun, friendship and adventure, we provide children and young people the opportunity to:

  • Make new friends
  • Try new things
  • Learn at their own pace
  • Challenge themselves
  • Discover adventure

A Resilient Youth Australia study has shown that young people participating in Scouts report higher levels of resilience when compared to their non-Scouts peers, and that they report an overall better life satisfaction. Read more here.
