Scouts prepare young people with skills for life. They encourage young people to do more, learn more and be more. Each week, they help over 460,000 young people aged 6-18 enjoy fun and adventure while developing the skills they need to succeed, now and in the future.
Teamwork, leadership and resilience – skills that have helped Scouts become everything from teachers and social workers to astronauts and Olympians. Scouts help young people develop and improve key life skills.
They celebrate diversity and stand against intolerance, and are part of a worldwide movement, creating stronger communities and inspiring positive futures. Find out more.
Compared to those not in the movement, Scouts are:
- 17% more likely to demonstrate leadership skills
- 11% more likely to be better problem solvers
- 19% more likely to show emotional intelligence
- 17% more likely to be able to work well in teams
