We empower youth through adventurous experiences to lead lives that make a positive difference. It encourages their physical, mental, emotional, social and spiritual development so they can take a constructive place in our society.
The opportunity to ‘learn by doing’ is provided in the youth scheme. All adults in Scouts must make sure the programmes Scouts run are fun and exciting, while making sure that it is safe. Scouts policies, rules, code of conduct, duty of care, and risk management policy are there to help adults make sure the young people in their care stay safe, while enjoying themselves and learning.
Scouts NZ ensures the youth in adult volunteer care, develop themselves to their highest potential. This has been happening for over 100 years and the proof is in those who have gone before us, who are in positions of considerable responsibility and are successful in their lives. Names that are known throughout the world had their start in Scouts.
