#YouShape Month 2018

January 07, 2018 at 1:56 PM



Youth Shaped Scouting isn't a new concept; empowering young people to decide, design and implement their own Programme and experiences is already happening around the country. #YouShape month allows us to ensure that this continues and is embedded in every level of the Movement.

Applications are now open for Wear Their Necker. Last year Margaret (Network) and Euan (Explorer) took over the DC's and were involved with district flag, exec, awards and big meetings. This year we are again looking for someone aged 18-25 to run the district in February. If you think you would like this experience fill in the application form today. If you want to nominate someone who you think would be great at this fill in this form and Scott (ADC YI) will get in touch with them. 

The district advisory group will be meeting before #youshape month to throw in some ideas and we will hopefully have our first Youth Commissioner!

We will be shouting about the Scottish Youth Approved Awards - the accreditation scheme for youth shaped scouting in Scotland. If you need support with these give Scott a shout. 

Check the UK #YouShape pages for more support and guidance on running forums with your section. It can seam scary to start with - but quickly your young people will understand that they are highly valued and will contribute some fantastic ideas! Remember Scouting belongs to the young people - lets help them shape it!
