February is #YouShape month and we want to make it the best yet! Youth Shaped Scouting takes place all year round, but again we’re focusing on it in February. We want to support young people and volunteers to embed this traditional part of Scouting into what we do and celebrate the amazing examples of Youth Shaped Scouting already taking place around the County.
During February, within each District, there will be a local event/activity run by your District Youth Commissioner teams which you should have received details about already, if not you will do soon.
The County will be running a youth ambassadors camp for Scouts which will be a chance to meet Scouts from across the county, have ago at fun and engaging activities and to learn leadership skills. You’ll receive more details from your District Commissioner in the new year.
Why not add a #YouShape evening into your programme in February to hear the views of your young people and get their input into the programme. There are fantastic resources available, including activity inspirations and activity postcards, on the Scout website, which will help you to do this.
If you have any questions about #YouShape or how to include it into your programme, please speak to your Local Youth Commissioner or contact Mike Priest the County Youth Commissioner below, or via Facebook (facebook.com/CYCWS) or Twitter (@mikewscyc).
