Jersey Scout Association
Membership Number: AJC122 / Registered Charity Number: 071
Scouting exists to actively engage and support young people in their personal development, empowering them to make a positive contribution to society.
These skills for life are developed through participation in a programme, underpinned by our method, and delivered principally in Squirrel Dreys, Beaver Colonies, Cub Packs, Scout Troops, Explorer Units and Scout Networks.
The objectives are to provide opportunities for younger people, in partnership with adults to:
a) participate in a balanced programme of activities & challenges.
b) develop leadership & organisational skills.
c) take an increasing responsibility for their personal development.
The programme in each of these Sections is delivered by a volunteer Section Leadership Team working in partnership with the young people in their Section.
Scouting takes place when young people, in partnership with adults, work together based on the values of Scouting and:
- enjoy what they are doing and have fun
- take part in activities indoors and outdoors
- learn by doing
- share in spiritual reflection
- take responsibility and make choices
- undertake new and challenging activities
- make and live by their Promise.
