Devon Scouts Update
Over the past few weeks we have been challenged in so many ways. Many of us will be missing our friends and family members, not to mention just being able to go outside and enjoy the sunshine.
Even with these challenges many of you have been sharing the amazing Scouting fun you’ve been having both virtually on line and in your homes .
This coming weekend 3-5th April JOTI (Jamboree on the Internet) will give Scouts all over the UK and the World the opportunity to come together online in what promises to be the biggest and best Jamboree online ever!
Please visit the Programmes at Home web page or the Scouting at Home Facebook page and follow the link to join Scouts all over the world on this special JOTI .
Together this weekend , Scouts can make this world a lot smaller and hopefully, just a little better !
Please remember , whatever you’re doing this weekend , please stay at home and look after each other .
We prepare young people with skills for life
We encourage young people to do more, learn more and be more. Each week, we help over 460,000 young people aged 6-25 enjoy fun and adventure while developing the skills they need to succeed, now and in the future.
We’re talking about teamwork, leadership and resilience – skills that have helped Scouts become everything from teachers and social workers to astronauts and Olympians. We help young people develop and improve key life skills.
We believe in bringing people together. We celebrate diversity and stand against intolerance, always. We’re part of a worldwide movement, creating stronger communities and inspiring positive futures.
What do Scouts do?
Young people in the Scouts take part in an exciting programme of activities from kayaking to coding. They develop character skills like resilience, initiative and tenacity; employability skills such as leadership, teamwork and problem solving; and practical skills like cooking and first aid. And research proves it really works. A 2018 report says Scouts are 17% more likely to show leadership skills and work well in teams. They’re a third more likely to support their communities too.
Volunteer with us
Whether you can spare an hour a month or a day a year, we have hundreds of opportunities both behind the scenes and directly supporting young people. With full support and award winning training, you can volunteer on a flexible basis. Not only is it incredibly rewarding and great fun, you’ll learn some brilliant skills transferable to the workplace too. We welcome volunteers from every community and background. You don’t need to have been a Scout. You just need to believe in a more positive future and the difference we can make together.
