Join the adventure?
Scouting has shaped the development of youth for more than 100 years. Scouts are in every part of our community and we are one of the biggest and most successful youth organisations in Australia and in the world.
The main aim of Scouting is to provide an adventurous, fun, challenging and inclusive program to youth everywhere which teaches life skills and leadership. With more than 17,000 youth members and 5,000 adult volunteers in Victoria alone, registration numbers are booming.
Another wonderful aspect of the program is that Scouts always work their hardest to provide support and service within their community. Participating in food drives, habitat revegetation projects, fundraising for charities such and first-aid volunteering at local events are just some of the places you might see Scouts doing their bit. Therefore playing a constructive role in society as responsible members of both their local and international communities.
Scouting is for everyone, and found everywhere, with more than 400 local Scout Groups across Victoria.
Some worldwide Scout stats:
- More than 40 million Scout members
- Scouts in all countries except five
(Cuba, North Korea, China, Laos and Andorra)
- One million local Scout Groups
