Youth Program Review

Imagine the possibilities

This is a challenging and exciting adventure that must engage the opinions of both Scouting and the wider community. We will need to take risks, look wide, determine our key markets and be bold in the decisions that we make. We promote to the community an image of adventure and fun but is that how we are perceived by the wider community today?
