Volunteer to support the development of Youth Involvement

24th October 2016

As an organisation that is all about support the development of young people, Scouting is striving that by 2018, 80% of young people will be able to say they shape Scouting, feel listened to and are taken seriously, 80% of Young Leaders will have the opportunity to develop their skills and have a positive impact on Scouting and 80% of adults will help young people to shape their Scouting.

How do we plan to work towards this ambitious target for Clyde Scouts?

We are seeking nominations for the appointment of an Assistant Regional Commissioner (Youth Involvement) (ARC (YI))who will take a lead in driving forwards and implementing, in partnership with our young people, the Scouts Scotland Youth Involvement strategy.

What does this mean in practical terms?

The ARC (YI) will support the creation of a Regional Advisory Group (RAG) with between 8 and 14 young people, one of whom will be elected as the Regional Youth Commissioner.

They will then work with the RAG to design their style of meeting, set their agenda and design their organisational process empowering them to explore where they can influence the operation, direction and delivery of the Regional activities, programme and events.

As the culture of youth involvement gets embedded in the work of the Region, the ARC (YI) will then begin supporting District Commissioners to undertake a similar process.
