Happy New Year to you all from everyone at i.Voice

We are really excited to be welcoming in the New Year with our first meeting on Sunday 10th January at Tupton Scout Hut! It’s set to be a really exciting day with lots of things to talk about in the run up to YouShape and the YouShape Week (1-7th February 2016)

As part of Scouting’s vision to 2018, Youth Shaped Scouting has played a massive part over the last few years to give Scouts from every section a voice to improve the future of their own Scouting and the movement as a whole. The end goal, for Scouting to be shaped by Young People in partnership with adults.

In 2016, Jay Thompson (Assistant UK Youth Commissioner) and the rest of the YouShape Team have asked every group to answer two questions during the week of the second YouShape event (being held this year at Dearne Valley Activity Centre and represented by Matt and Izzy from the i.Voice Team). We want to know:

What would you tell your friends is the best thing about being a Scout? What new activities would you like to try?

What is the most important part in the role of a Patrol Leader?

During the YouShape Week, i.Voice will be holding a live Twitter Debate in order to answer these questions from the perspective of Chesterfield District, we want every section of every group to take some part in a Youth Shaped Debate/Activity and i.Voice will be on hand to help. Members of i.Voice represent every Scout Section in the District, they are invaluable in helping every group answer these questions and will be on hand to do so!

We also want to hear from you, what is the most important question to ask Scouts in Chesterfield?

(This could be anything from “what is the best thing you have done with your group this year” to “what do you want the District SAS to offer?”)

A list of potential questions will be released after the next i.Voice Meeting in January, but we need Scouts help to come up with them…

Ask your group/group leader to gather suggestions then send us an email to or tweet us @ivoice_scouts!

The Beaver, Cub, Scout or Explorer that comes up with the best question (as voted by us) will win a prize, to be awarded after the YouShape Week

We want to wish everyone all the best for 2016

Yours in Scouting
