Introducing The All New Growth Service!
We’re excited to announce the launch of the all new Growth Service, aimed at supporting NSOs in realising the Movement’s vision of enabling 100 million young people to be active citizens creating positive change in their communities and in the world based on shared values.
The Growth Service is the 13th WOSM Service, and is a direct response to the increasing demand for support, inspiration and resources on sustainable organisational growth.
Why Growth Is Essential
Today, more than ever, the world needs more Scouts - young people empowered with shared values and equipped with the skills of Scouting, to be a beacon of positive change. For this reason, it is important that we work together to ensure that every young person is offered the opportunity to join our Movement. Scouting’s impact and potential as a social force for change increases with every young person that we can help develop.
What You Can Expect
The Growth Service includes resources for understanding, planning and implementing actions for sustainable growth, as we work together towards becoming the world’s leading educational movement by 2023. Some practical resources you can expect include:
- Growth Toolkit
- Growth Self-Assessment Checklist
- Management Systems Toolkit
- E-learning courses
- NSO Experiences and Best Practices
You’ll also be able to find support for:
- Evaluating your growth potential
- Integrating growth in your NSO plans
- Developing a Growth Strategy
- Ongoing mentorship in growing your NSO
Designed for All
The Growth Service was developed by WOSM’s Growth unit by pooling together the best practices and knowledge from all across the Movement. Although the service is designed for NSOs, most of the resources available can also be tailored and used in regional (district) and local Scout groups. These resources can also be used by volunteers and staff at governance and executive levels across the Movement.
The service will be supported by trained WOSM consultants across all regions, designated staff from the global and regional support centres as well as designated Growth Champions.
