With youth leading, why not let the youth members plan the next going up ceremony. This will help with smooth transition between sections. Project Patrols mixing youth from multiple sections will help with networking, youth will be looking forward to moving to the next section.
We are introducing a new and exciting program concept each year for the next few years.
Here is the plan.
Our focus for 2018 has been 'The Adventure Begins'. The resources can still be downloaded from here. Other supporting resources are available at Scout Shop online.
Our youth are now planning and leading activities and events, more so than ever before. These plans usually start at a section council. Find out more about section councils and enter the fun at Mob Council (MC4), Pack Council (PC4) or Troop Council (TC6).

Where are you on our journey train?
Our focus for 2019 is the reinforcement of the "Challenge Areas" in our section programs.
Section appropriate resources will be released at the February GL conference. As a refresher, here are our traditional Challenge Areas. At your next section councils ask the youth members to include these concepts in their programming or review some existing programs to see where these concepts already exist.
