Welcome to #YouShape!
We are celebrating all things #YouShape. Youth Shaped Scouting takes place all year round, and we are focusing to support young people and volunteers to embed this traditional part of Scouting into what we do, and celebrating the amazing examples of Youth Shaped Scouting already taking place around the District.
What is #YouShape all about?
#YouShape is a platform to empower young people to shape their Scouting experience at a local and national level. We encouraging all sections to run local activities that will help their young people engage on a national level.
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 theme allows us to ensure that this continues and is embedded in every level of the Movement.
What could take place in the District to promote #YouShape?
- Wear Their Necker: get young people to shadow volunteers at Group or District level for a day placing them in decision-making positions may encourage adults to hear their views.
- Invite young people to AGMs or District Planning meetings to understand and engage in decision-making processes.
- Get young people to voice their thoughts on their Programme through activities.
To get more information and support contact Axe Districts Youth Commissioner Gary Barron, or invite him along to one of your meetings to help your #youshape journey begin!
