Scouts Youth Leading Stories

Scouting is the partnership between young people and adults.

Our Program Method focuses on age-appropriate Youth Leading Adults Supporting activities throughout Scouting and highlights the different, but complementary, roles youth and adults play. 

Our young people have regular opportunities for making developmentally-appropriate decisions about what they want in their Scouting, and learning life skills as they interact with other youth members and adults.

Adult members, Leaders and Volunteers support our Youth Members to become increasingly involved in the management of their Scouting. Adults facilitate learning opportunities together with our Youth and create meaningful learning experiences and skills.

Who Will You Nominate?

Scout Of The Year 2022
Jordan Phillips
Jordan is the first Rover Scout in Australia to achieve the Advanced Diploma in Leadership and Management qualification – which is a testament to the many roles he holds within Scouting. These roles have provided Jordan with the knowledge, skills, leadership opportunities and evidence required for this qualification.


Rover Scout Of The Year

Liam is the second Scouts WA Rover to achieve the ADVANCED DIPLOMA LEADERSHIP AND MANAGEMENT this year. A remarkable achievement as only two Scouts nationally have the qualification and they are both from WA. 

This is an amazing achievement and indicates the level at which Liam is working within Scouts. The qualification is new to Scout Australia Institute of Training (SAIT) this year, with the Diploma in Leadership and Management being a prerequisite.
