We’ll launch the YouShape Award in October. The badge will encourage young people to work together with their section leaders, but ultimately, young people will decide what they want to achieve, how they want to achieve it, and when they’ve achieved each requirement. It’ll encourage young people to plan and lead programmes and represent Scouts locally.
Over the next few months, we’ll empower local Youth Commissioners to champion the new badge at launch and support sections to get started delivering the activities. When it launches, we’d appreciate your support. If you want to find more out more about our journey so far, check out the Scouts website.
