Youth Program Review
The Future is here!
At AJ2019 the new Scouts Australia Program was launched. The new program is the culmination of 6 years of work to revitalise Scouting.
Be prepared for more adventure, more challenges, more achievements and more fun – our new program is here! Be prepared to take control of setting goals and developing leadership skills between Sections. Be prepared to help create Unit programs and take control of personal progression.
Adult leaders will support us, mentor us and advise us, but they will make sure we are at the centre of our Scouting journey. The new program is structured so that we each create our own journey of experiences, and develop at our own pace, in areas that genuinely challenge and interest us. We will be inspired by our Scouting friends as well as our adult leaders.
Mistakes? We all make them, but the most important thing is to do our best, to learn from our adventures and then set another goal to achieve. We will learn how to use a Plan > Do > Review > approach to keep us moving forward. We will share exciting adventures and celebrate achievements with our Scouting family, supporting each other along the way.

YPR Seeks Pioneer Scout Groups
Calling all Scout Groups! The Youth Program Review (YPR) is looking for Scout Groups across the country to be the ‘Pioneers’ of our new and exciting program.
Over three years ago the YPR was formed to research the current scouting program and to determine if it was still relevant for 21st Century Australia. From our research, we surveyed all members across the movement nationwide, to see what they wanted in Scouting.
Three years down the track, we have taken a new perspective on Scouting, incorporating core fundamentals that stem from both the new, contemporary ideas of our members as well as the original ethos of Scouting – getting outdoors, being adventurous and becoming a global citizen.
