As Scouts, we believe in preparing young people with skills for life. We encourage our young people to do more, learn more and be more.
Young people and adult volunteers enjoy fun and adventure while developing the skills they need to succeed, now and in the future. We’re talking about teamwork, leadership and resilience – skills that have helped Scouts become everything from teachers and social workers to astronauts and Olympians. We believe in bringing people together. We celebrate diversity and stand against intolerance, always.
We’re a worldwide movement, creating stronger communities and inspiring positive futures. #SkillsForLife
With 25,371 members (January 2019 figures), Hampshire has the largest Scout County membership in the UK with 18,106 youth members, and 7,265 adult volunteers.
However, with 2,300 young people waiting to join, we require even more volunteer leaders and adult volunteers.

The essential part of the Scouting experience lies in the Youth Programme. Youth Programme in Scouting not only refers to the activities, but also as to how and why they are done. Overall, activities are seen as a means rather than a goal in themselves and create opportunities for each person to develop skills and attitudes and acquire knowledge.
