The Scouting movement is one of the world’s largest and most successful youth organisations and has been in action since 1907.
At Scouts NSW, we have over 18,000 youth and adult members from all walks of life. We believe in preparing young people with skills for life, in a youth-led, adult-supported environment.
Each week, thousands of young people aged 5 to 25 enjoy fun and adventure, while forming friends and learning skills they need to succeed both now and in the future. Skills like teamwork, leadership and resilience – skills that have helped Scouts become everything from teachers and adventurers to astronauts and Olympians. We deliver an essential service that empowers young people to be active, confident, responsible citizens of their local, national and international communities.
We’re incredibly proud of the positive impact we’ve made to millions of people over the past century. And our secret to success? We put the needs of young people first. Our youth-led, adult supported approach ensures our youth members are always at the forefront of our program.
