Leaders, Youth, Parents- Have you had a chance to have your say about what Scouting in Australia should look like in the next three decades? Now there is another opportunity.
Over the next three months each of us has the opportunity to respond to issues relating the Youth Program Review (YPR). Meetings are being held in each Region as well as Skype-style meetings planned for November and December. This is to promote this stage of the Review to ensure we develop the best possible youth program for our future youth members.
Some of the Review teams have been looking closely at evolving the Australian Scout Promise and Law and Duty to God, to create more inclusiveness and unity in our fantastic Movement. We want to keep the foundations of its meaning, but using more contemporary language, we intend to ensure that all young Australians would be comfortable making our Promise and living by our Law. We want all our Members, aged from 6 years, to understand and make our Promise, rather than the modified
versions we currently offer to the younger sections. One Promise for all Members is our goal.
Specifically your feedback is needed regarding the future wording for our Promise and Law and what duty to God means in Australia.
