Scouting is ...

Education for life

Scouting complements the school and the family, filling needs not met by either. Scouting develops self knowledge, the need to explore, to discover, to want to know.

Scouts discover the world beyond the classroom, tapping the skills of others to learn, and passing that knowledge on to others.

A movement for youth

Scouting is a Movement... on the move.  Evolving and adapting everywhere according to local conditions, serving according to local needs.

International

There are recognized Scout organizations and branches in more than 216 countries and territories.

Growing

Scouting has never stopped growing since its founding in 1907. Today there are more than 25 million members - boys and girls.  Scouting has doubled its membership in the last 20 years. Much of the growth is in developing countries.

Open to all

Scouting is open to all, regardless of race or creed, in accordance with the purpose, principles and method conceived by its founder Robert Baden-Powell.

Fun, with a purpose

Through recreation, Scouting achieves its purpose to help young people develop physically, intellectually, socially and spiritually.

Scouting is a code of living

Scouting\'s Principles describe a simple code of living to which all Scouts make a personal commitment through the Scout Promise and Law. Scouting helps Scouts learn how to carry out their commitment in everyday life. This approach to life has three dimensions:

A spiritual dimension

a commitment to seek the spiritual value of life beyond the material world.

A social dimension

Participating in the development of society, respecting the dignity of others and the integrity of the natural world. Promoting local, national and international peace, understanding and cooperation.

A personal dimension

developing a sense of personal responsibility and stimulating the desire for responsible self-expression.

Scouts are involved in Meeting real needs

Scouts are involved in a vast number of issues facing the communities where they live.

Scouts work with others in the community to achieve mutual objectives. They work with friends, neighbors, community leaders and other organizations.

The Mission of Scouting

The mission of Scouting is to contribute to the education of young people, through a value system based on the Scout Promise and Law, to help build a better world where people are self-fulfilled as individuals and play a constructive role in society.

This is achieved by

-   involving them throughout their formative years in a non-formal educational process;

-  using a specific method that makes each individual the principal agent in his or her development as a self-reliant, supportive, responsible and committed person;

-  assisting them to establish a value system based upon spiritual, social and personal principles as expressed in the Promise and Law.
