You Shape

Welcome to #YouShape month!

Following the success of #YouShape in previous years, this year we’re celebrating all things #YouShape for a whole month in February. Youth Shaped Scouting takes place all year round, but we’re focusing on February to support young people and volunteers to embed this traditional part of Scouting into what we do, and celebrating the amazing examples of Youth Shaped Scouting already taking place around the country.

Don’t forget to keep sharing what you’re up to this month using #YouShape on social media, and get your #YouShape badges and wristbands from Scout Shops.

What is #YouShape all about?

#YouShape Month is a platform to empower young people to shape their Scouting experience at a local and national level. During #YouShape Month, we’re encouraging all sections to run local activities that will help their young people engage on a national level.

Youth Shaped Scouting isn’t a new concept; empowering young people to decide, design and implement their own Programme and experiences is already happening around the country. #YouShape month allows us to ensure that this continues and is embedded in every level of the Movement.
