10 9 The Purpose of Scouting To help young people achieve their full physical, intellectual, social, and spiritual potential as individuals, as responsible citizens, and as members of their local, national, and international community. Scouting is NOT a youth club, but an educational movement with a clear aim/purpose. It aims to make the world a better place, and as such is to be considered idealistic in the way in which it operates. This idealism is reflected in its principles:

11 10 The Principles of Scouting 3 principles underpin Scouting: Duty to self Duty to others Duty to God Duty to self encourages young people to develop their own gifts and talents and to be responsible for who they become and what they do Duty to others encourages them: to share in the development of society; to respect the dignity of others; to promote peace; and to protect the natural world Duty to God will be considered later

12 11 The 6 Personal Development Areas: Body Mind Faith and Beliefs Relationships Community Surroundings (Environment)

13 12 The Method of Scouting The Scout method seeks to provide an enjoyable, attractive scheme of progressive training for young people based around the Scout Law and Promise, guided by adults. It involves: enjoying what they are doing learning by doing participating in varied and progressive activities making choices for themselves taking responsibility for their actions working in groups taking increasing responsibility for others taking part in outdoor activities sharing in prayer and worship making and living out their Promise

14 13 Religious Policy The 5 principles of spiritual development: Develop an inner discipline and training Be involved in corporate (group) activities Understand the natural world around you Help to create a more tolerant and caring society Discover the need for prayer and worship
