At its core, Scouting is about positive youth development

Youth at the Centre

In Scouting, we put youth at the centre of everything we do. We are a youth movement supported by adults, not a movement of adults developing young people

This means two things:

1. Every decision we make, at every level of the movement, should be made with the best interests of young people in mind

2. Young people should always have a meaningful role in all our decision making.

Youth involvement in decision making is critical to keeping the interests of young people in mind. This means youth should be involved in shaping their Scouting experience at every level in an age appropriate manner
