You Shape

At Scouts, young people learn how to speak up and take the lead. That’s what the new YouShape Award is all about.

Youth-Shaped Scouting is something we do every day of the year, where we take a particular focus on celebrating all we do to empower young people.

We want every young person to shape their own adventure.

Youth-shaped Scouting not only improves the way that we Scout, but also improves the experiences of the young people involved.
