What is Youth Shaped?

Would you like to give your opinions on the issues in Scouting which really affect you? Well now you can, Youth Shaped Scouting allows for all Scouts aged 6-25 to have a say on the Scouting in Devon and their Local area.

WHAT DOES THIS MEAN FOR YOU / YOUNG PEOPLE?

As a Youth member of Devon Scouting you will be able to have a say on the issues in Scouting which affect you. This will be on a Local, County and National level and is for all Youth members of Scouting from Beavers to Network. 

If you have any questions please feel free to get in contact with the County Youth Shaped Team via email at youthshaped@devonscouts.org.uk or Like us on Facebook and Follow us on Twitter. 

If you want to have your say and get involved with Youth Shaped Scouting in Devon look out for any opportunities via the Devon Scouts Website and/or the Devon Youth Shaped Facebook and Twitter pages.

WHAT DOES THIS MEAN FOR LEADERS? 

By 2018 the aim is to have 80% of Young People shaping their Scouting in partnership with adults. 

As Leaders we encourage Scouts to develop as young adults and offer exciting opportunities whilst being inspiring at the same time. All leaders have the skills already to encourage Young people to have their say on all decisions which affect them in Scouting. It is now about giving Scouts the chance to speak out and have their say.

WHAT DOES THE FUTURE HOLD?

The next few months are an exciting time for all Scouts in Devon, as well as across the Country. The County Youth Shaped Team are looking to attend as many events up and down the County in order to get the views of Scouts across Devon.

The aims set out by Devon Scouts are:

1. Appoint a Devon Youth Commissioner

2. Appoint a Devon Youth Team 

3. Hold a Devon YouShape event

More information will be released in the coming months with regards to the aims above.
