18-25 year olds can now enjoy Scouting in Basildon even more with the recent changes made to the Scout Network. 

The Scout Network is the final Scouting section and gives opportunities to 18-25 year olds who have an interest in Scouting, their own personal development and having fun! Scout Network is going through some changes to make the Programme even better and accessible to all young adults between the ages of 18-25.

Changes to membership

Scout Network members are not required to pay membership fees. This means the Network is free to join, as well as this, once you turn 18 you are automatically a part of Scout Network!

So why join The Scout Network?

When you reach 18 life starts to look a bit different. Often more opportunities and responsibility present themselves. This means that your scouting life needs to be flexible to fit in with how life maybe changing.

The Network is the perfect community for 18-25 year olds to continue Scouting or start their Scouting journey and join 20,000+ other members who are independently or working together on projects and events around adventure, international and community.

So what are projects and events?

A project should have an impact beyond the immediate team who are working on the project. For a project to be successful the series of tasks need to be planned well, there should be a result/outcome, efficient resources and a timeline.

An event is a single activity that can take place at any given time; an event could be taking part in a climbing session. You may be inspired by this activity and decide to turn it into a project by hosting a weekend climbing session for local schools in your area. You can find out more about project and events hereThe flexibility of doing events and projects is you can work on these at a time, place and  pace that suits you!

Get people to join your project or event!

As part of the reboot, a digital platform has been introduced. This is where you can organise and share your project and event ideas with all of Scout Network. Use the website to connect with the Network members from both Basildon and across the UK.
