Share your story on Spiritual Development in Scouting

Spiritual development is an important part of Scouting. It helps young people in Scouting to become who they are and shapes their characters.

The World Organization of the Scout Movement is looking at how spiritual development flourishes on international, national and local levels. A large-scale survey was conducted among National Scout Organizations in recent months and is now being evaluated.
We now invite individual Scouts at local level, of all ages, especially youth members and local Scout leaders, to share their insights into the spiritual development in their local groups.

Tell us how your group works with spirituality. What do you like or what don’t you like about it? Is the element present in your programme or is it missing? Are such moments, moments of fun or deep thinking or both (or neither)? Share your insights and story!
Feel free to pick your way of sharing your insight. You can
- Write your text in the form below and/or
- Share a link to a picture that illustrates your attitude and/or
- Share a link to a video that illustrates your attitude and/or
- Share a link to a resource you enjoy using with your group and/or
- Send an email to

By contributing, you acknowledge that the inputs may be used in WOSM’s statements and/or publications related to Spiritual Development in Scouting.

You are encouraged to include your first name, age, role and country (Jerome, 17, Rover Scout, Mozambique) that might be attached to your statement should it be used. You may decide to include only some or none of these specifications. If you decide to supply your email address, we may get in touch with you and ask subsequent questions. This, however, is not compulsory.

Feel free to respond in any of the official languages of WOSM - Arabic, English, French, Russian, and Spanish.

We are looking forward to receiving your stories, insights, pictures and much more by 15 February 2017. Thank you!

We could not become a Scout without belonging to a religious faith, it is the definition of duty to God.
