Youth Shaped Scouting is a vital part of the development of Scouting at all stages in a young person’s Scouting adventure. The delivery of youth shaped activities and events is also important for leaders too. Between the 23rd – 29th August 2021, the Kent Scouts Youth Shaped Team launched their first ever virtual youth conference ‘We Shape Kent’ for young people and adults.
What does We Shape Kent involve?
The week of events was completely free for everyone and included:
Exciting youth shaped activities for our Beavers, Cubs and Scouts across the week.
An opportunity for Explorers and Young Leaders to take part in a collective youth forum virtually.
Live sessions for Explorers and Scout Network members about their next steps and moving forwards in Scouting.
Live sessions for our Adult volunteers on embedding youth shaped Scouting in programmes, as well as an insight into youth shaped governance.
All live sessions were recorded and can be watched below..
Will there be a badge for taking part?
Yes, there will be a badge for taking part in We Shape Kent. Leaders can order badges on behalf of their Scout Group or Explorer Unit after the event. The badges are FREE to all Kent Scout Groups and Explorer Units, but you will need to pay for postage. If you are outside Kent, then the badges will cost £1 each.
