The New Program in Victoria
With our new program we are moving towards one continuous journey across all youth sections. Why not let your youth members plan the next going up. 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.
Each year, in Victoria, a manageable portion of the New Program will be launched in February.
As we move forward, no youth member will be disadvantaged.
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).
The journey so far
The Adventure Begins activities have refreshed our knowledge of these important and core programming concepts
- The Principles, Purpose and Mission of Scouting
- The SPICES and their Educational Objectives
- The Scout Method (with emphasis on: Youth Leading, Adults Supporting; Community Involvement; and Promise and Law)
- Section Councils
- Plan > Do > Review >
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.
