The Internet

Opportunities and Challenges for Scouting
A detailed look at safety issues regarding the internet and how it can be used to benefit your Scout association.

The European Scout Conference, in Prague, 2001, found the need for guidelines to be published on the safe use of the internet. This Euro.Scout.Doc details the dangers that can arise from the internet, best practices to use and, also, how it can be utilised to benefit a Scout group or association. Advise is given on developing websites and child protection on the internet.

Child Protection

The Safe from Harm Symposium
Guidelines and recommendations on child protection in the Scouting Movement, based on feedback at the Safe from Harm Symposium.

It is important, in the whole of society, that young people are protected. It is, therefore, vital that our organisation have procedures, relating to the protection of children, in place. This Euro.Scout.Doc looks at the importance of this, the rights of young people, what child abuse is and makes recommendations to Scout associations for forming their own child protection policies.

Child Protection Tool-Kit

Helping organisations to develop a child protection policy.

Developed by Europe Region WAGGGS and the European Scout Region, the tool-kit aims to assist NSOs and MOs to develop a policy for child protection. It gives practical information as well as sample forms on the issue.

Supporting the Adults we Need

An insight into how to best provide the support needed to adults in Scouting.

Too often, once initial training in completed, adults in Scouting are left without any support in their group. This can lead to problems in the group or between other adults and a lack of enthusiasm or motivation from a Scouter. This Euro.Scout.Doc documents the results of three working groups that worked on how best to tackle the issue and give our Adults in Scouting the support they need.

Motivation in Scouting

Motivation is an issue in everything we do in life. Here we look at motivation and its relevance and importance to Scouting.

For Leaders, motivation comes in many forms - self-motivation (to go the weekly meeting, clean the Scout Den, develop the programme, organise a large international camp, etc.) and motivating others (Leaders and members).

Value of Volunteering

Some countries have a very strong culture of volunteering. Scouting has an important role to play in these countries, as a leading organisation in the voluntary sector. This Euro.Scout.Doc was produced to highlight this importance and as a tool for those working on a national level to ensure this role continues. It is also a tool for those in countries where the voluntary sector is still developing, providing guidance on how Scouting can help define the social value of volunteering.
