How do Scouts make the world a better place?

Each year we empower more young people to achieve the remarkable.

We provide safe spaces for young people from all backgrounds…
to develop the resilience, leadership, teamworking, social skills…
and confidence needed to succeed in life.

We train adult volunteers to deliver amazing opportunities for young people…

to plan and lead adventures,
to achieve and accomplish awards and badges,
to experience the outdoors,
and to make a difference in their communities.

We support young people to have a voice in shaping their own futures…
and in shaping the society they’d like to grow up in.

We want to make sure these opportunities are available to everyone, so we’ve been opening new groups in some communities that have never had Scouting before.

We live in a rapidly changing world, but Scouting brings communities together.

Our founder said, “Try to leave the world a little better than you found it.”

Our young people are key to this. Scouts can help Scotland’s young people be the best they can be, give them the confidence to dream big, break down social barriers, and create better futures.
