Scouting provides young people with opportunities to participate in programs, events, activities and projects that contribute to their growth as active citizens by fostering young people’s development and character socially, physically, intellectually, emotionally and spiritually. Through these initiatives, young people become agents of positive change who inspire others to take action.
The Youth Programme in Scouting is the totality of the learning opportunities from which young people can benefit (What), created to achieve the purpose of Scouting (Why), and experienced through the Scout Method (How).
- Why – the educational objectives, in accordance with the purpose and principles of the Movement
- What – all experiences and situations that young people can learn from, both organised and spontaneous, i.e. the learning opportunities
- How – the way in which it is done, i.e. the Scout Method
The Scout Promise
“On my honour, I promise that I will do my best, to do my duty to Allah and the country; to help other people at all times and to obey the Scout Law”
The Scout Movement is based on the following principles:
Duty to God – a person’s relationship with the spiritual values of life, the fundamental belief in a force above mankind.
Duty to others – a person’s relationship with, and responsibility within, society in the broadest sense of the term: his or her family, local community, country and the world at large, as well as respect for others and for the natural world.
Duty to self – a person’s responsibility to develop his or her own potential, to the best of that person’s ability.
