Shaping the future of Scouts

Young people and volunteers got their thinking caps on at Blackpool Pleasure Beach.

On Saturday 5th March, young people and volunteers from across West Lancashire County got together to speak up and get their voices heard to help shape the future of Scouting in West Lancashire at the Blackpool Pleasure Beach.

The day started off with a number of acitivities, discussions and some out of the box thinking on how the adult volunteers can support and create better expeirences for young people using thir ideas and suggestions.

From Blackpool, some of our Network members contributed to the day and afterwards hopped over to the Pleasure Beach and jumped on the rides!

Scout Network is our 6th section for young people aged 18-25 years old and meet each week (if not more) for thrilling and exciting activities. Last week they got their climbing shoes on and went bouldering. Liam Chow, Network Commissioner, said “it’s so great, especially after the pandemic, to get back together”.

We know that Scouts empowers young people. They learn to ask the big questions, play their part, and think for themselves. It can help them to build confidence in themselves and stand up for what they believe in. Get stuck in yourself!

Youth Shaped Scouting

The more young people are involved in shaping their Scouting experiences the more they will get out of it, and the more likely they are to stay, do well and achieve their top awards.
