Joey Scouts - Discover Adventure

Unit Start

Starting a new Joey Scout Unit might seem challenging but if you believe that Scouting has massive benefits for young people, then the journey of establishing your own Joey Scout Unit – and the time and work involved – will be worthwhile.

The Unit Start resource has been developed to explain the who, what and why of Joey Scouts, the benefits that youth gain from being a Joey Scout, the benefits to your Group, why your Group should have a Joey Scout Mob, and  why the Joey Scout Section and new Units are critical to the growth of Scouting in Victoria

This manual covers the steps and activities to give your Group the best chance of success in starting your own Joey Scout Unit.
