4 Week Challenge
To encourage adults to have a go at being a Scout volunteer for 4 weeks
You’ve probably heard of the 4 Week Challenge, it was launched by the Scout Association a couple of years ago to encourage adults to have a go at being a leader. After the 4 weeks we thank them and present them with a certificate to show our appreciation. We’ve found that many continue in Scouting becoming assistants and leaders so it’s a great way to recruit people and, we believe, worthy of a badge!
The badge is awarded when: The adult completes the 4 weeks and they also get a certificate
The badge is awarded to: The adult gets a certificate & badge, if their child is in the Group, they get a badge too!
The badge is worn: Lower right forearm, towards cuff
- Week 1 - Go along to see what Scouting is like. It's a good idea for an existing leader to be your 'buddy'
- Week 2 - Start to help out with activities or games.
- Week 3 - Get more involved and hands on
- Week 4 - Run an activity or game and you'll receive your certificate and badge
