Enabling Young People to Shape their own Adventures

What is #YouShape?

Youth-Shaped Scouting is something we do every day of the year, where we take a particular focus on celebrating all we do to empower young people.

We want every young person to shape their own adventure. 

Youth-shaped Scouting not only improves the way that we Scout, but also improves the experiences of the young people involved.


Postcard Forums

In order to deliver a youth-shaped programme, you need to be able to effectively retrieve ideas from the young people in your sections. To do this a set of Postcard Forums will be sent to GSLs/ESLs. These are a collection of section specific cards with everything you need to run a useful and meaningful forum.

It also includes some top tips and more information on ‘Wear their Necker’. We’re asking you to run one of these forums with your young people during February. Remember you can share images and videos from your forums on Twitter using #YouShape and tagging @NottsScoutsYC or by emailing them to [email protected] and we can share them for you.
