Introduction to Scout Network

 

Scout Network is the fifth and final section of the Scouting movement. From the time of Baden-Powell, there have been arrangements for young people who wanted to continue after their time in the Scout Section, and in 1967, Venture Scouts were formed from the existing Senior Scout and Rover Scout Sections. During the late 1990s we decided that, to meet the changing needs of young people, there should be two sections for the over 14s: Explorer Scouts for 14 to 18-year-olds, and the Scout Network for 18 to 25s.

 

 

 

 

Scout Network gives opportunities to 18-25 year olds who have an interest in Scouting, their own personal development and having fun.

Programme

Scout Network members take part in a variety of activities, which they undertake and organise themselves under the leadership of a District Scout Network Commissioner and sometimes with the support of a Programme Coordinator.
The Programme is divided into three Programme Areas: Community, International and Adventure.

The Scout Promise

There are a number of variations of the Scout Promise to reflect the range of faiths, beliefs and attitudes, and nationalities, in the UK within Scouting. 

For Christians, Jews and Sikhs

On my honour,
I promise that I will do my best
to do my duty to God
and to the Queen,
to help other people
and to keep the Scout Law.


For Muslims

In the name of Allah,
the Most Beneficial
and the Most Merciful,
I promise that I will do my best
to do my duty to Allah
and to the Queen,
to help other people
and to keep the Scout Law.


For Hindus and Buddhists

On my honour,
I promise that I will do my best
to do my duty to my Dharma
and to the Queen,
to help other people
and to keep the Scout Law.


For humanists, atheists and those with no defined faith

On my honour,
I promise that I will do my best
to uphold our Scout values,
to do my duty to the Queen,
to help other people
and to keep the Scout Law.


For subjects of independent Commonwealth countries, foreign nationals and individuals who are stateless the following wording can replace ‘duty to the Queen’

…to do my duty to the country in which I am now living.
