Development Scouting

Large international community aid banner

For many years Scouts Australia has participated in community aid and development projects around the world. Some projects are ongoing, with teams returning every year, and others are one-off projects. In each case, the main goal is the same - “to help other people”.

With a focus on environmental, health or social issues, these projects usually appeal to older Scouts, Venturer Scouts, Rovers and Leaders. In many cases there is a need to work closely with overseas governments and aid organisations. The planning and organisation of these projects can often be a joint effort between Scouting and the partner organisations.

Scouting has a lot to offer in the support of community aid and development projects, so if you’d like to get involved contact your Branch International Commissioner.
