Find out more about our week of Youth Shaped Scouting from 1st – 7th February 2016.
YouShape Week 2016 is well underway, with Groups up and down the country taking part in Youth Shaped Activities in order to change the future of our movement for the better!
As part of Scouting’s Vision for 2018, Scouting aims to become Youth Shaped in parnership with Adults. In Chesterfield District we are passionate about ensuring that our Young People have the best opportunity to shape the future of their Scouting, both for themselves and for our future Beavers, Cubs and Scouts!
The Scout Association has released activity packs tailored for each section packed full of exciting and interactive activities for groups to try as part of the YouShape Week (find these here). We want to hear what you get upto during the week, make sure you Tweet to @SpireScoutMedia using the #YouShape or drop us an email (firstname.lastname@example.org)
We are in a very privileged position in both Chesterfield and Derbyshire; with Youth Shaped Scouting being at the heart of what we do! We have a thriving District Youth Council (i.Voice) where Scouts/Explorers from all across the District have their say on issues that matter to them; we look forward to them hosting the Scouts Sports Day in May (Find out more by visiting the i.Voice Blog) or follow them on Twitter @ivoice_scouts
We are also pleased to say that we have 2 Scouters from Chesterfield who will represent Derbyshire at the YouShape Event being held at Dearne Valley Activity Centre this weekend! The weekend hopes to be a great success where Scouts who are passionate about Youth Involvement meet to share success stories and learn more about the future plans on a national level from Jay Thompson (Deputy UK Youth Commissioner) and the rest of the YouShape Team
Stay tuned for an exciting announcement next week that will help to make Youth Shaped Scouting even more of a success in Chesterfield!
