Resources and activities which can be used for national centenaries and moments of celebration.
In the early years of Scouting's second century, other centenary celebrations will take place as National Scout Organizations celebrate their centenaries. These milestones provide excellent opportunities to support national strategies and promote growth and development in Scouting. We need vibrant quality programmes to meet the needs of more young people, we need to recruit and retain dedicated adult volunteers and we need to constantly improve our communications in order to raise our profile and encourage more people to get involved!
