YouShape Week is a platform to empower young people to shape their Scouting at a national and local level. We are encouraging all sections to engage and take part in activities that enable members to shape their Programme and take part in the national conversation between 1-7 February 2016. The week will provide the opportunity for every young person from Beavers through to Network to get involved either online or at your meeting place.
Youth Shaped Scouting isn’t a new concept; empowering young people to decide, design and implement their own programme and experiences is what Scouting really does well but we do want to ensure that this continues and is embedded in all that the movement provides.
Activities such as youth forums can be a great way of empowering young people, improving the Scouting experience, learning new skills and ensuring we are all working in partnership. It’s up to you how you get involved…spend from 10 minutes at your weekly Beaver meeting to a whole weekend at a county youth forum and wear your YouShape badge with pride.
