Scouts prepare young people with Skills For Life

Each week throughout the UK, Scouts give almost half a million young people aged 6-25 the skills they need for school, college, university, the job interview, the important speech, the tricky challenge and the big dreams: the skills they need for life.

We’re talking about teamwork, leadership, resilience and skills that have helped Scouts become everything from teachers and key workers to astronauts and Olympians... to be best that they can be.

As an inclusive movement, everyone is welcome. There’s a Scout adventure out there waiting for all young people and adult volunteers. And we’ll help everyone find it.

We are part of a worldwide movement of over 50 million Scouts in all but five Countries, creating stronger communities and inspiring positive futures.
