Guide to working with Scout Ambassadors

In 2018, the World Organization of the Scout Movement (WOSM) announced Bear Grylls as the Chief Ambassador of World Scouting. The role of the Chief Ambassador of World Scouting is to promote Scouting worldwide, champion youth education, and inspire more adults and young people to join the Scout Movement. By showing up at World Events and taking part in global campaigns, Bear Grylls has enabled more young people to become active citizens and create positive change in their communities. That’s the power of a great Scout Ambassador!

It has been developed to assist NSOs develop their own action plan.

The Wellness of a Scout Leader

The wellness of all members in Scouting is critical. This is especially the case for our adults as sometimes our focus is strongly on the young people in our units, that we forget the importance of all those who are supporting them. The wellbeing of adults is critical in delivering authentic Scouting so that young people can receive the tailored assistance which they require. The Adults in Scouting (AiS) life cycle provides a great framework for supporting the wellbeing of all adult members.
