Preparing young people for life
In the contemporary world, youth empowerment is an oft-used expression, which has many different definitions depending on the context in which it is being used. It is often referred to as a mere intergenerational process and its’ true meaning is missed.
The aim of this Euro Scout.Doc is to introduce the concepts of Mentoring and Coaching within scouting and guiding. These concepts can be used to create and enhance intergenerational dialogue as a means of enhancing youth empowerment. Mentoring and coaching can also be used to provide scouts leaders with new and young scout skills and knowledge.
In front of you is EuroScoutDoc on Youth Empowerment presence in the Youth Programme. In Scouting, youth empowerment is, simultaneously, the purpose (our Mission), the educational approach (our Method) and the aimed result (the individual development process of each scout that allows him or her to become an adult self-fulfilled as individual and playing a constructive role in society).
We are pleased to present to you the Annual Report of the European Scout Committee’s work covering the period July 2011 to July 2012.
The visually compelling and carefully worded document is targeted at a large audience to help showcase multiple facets of Scouting and aims at demonstrating what Scouting does to transform the lives of children and young people.

The world’s population is young, with some 2.2 billion people under the age of 18. Children and young people have unique insights into solving problems in their communities, and often play a key role in the survival of their families in the event of natural disaster. We believe that by recognizing the rights and capacities of girls and boys, young women and young men, the challenges posed by climate change can be turned into opportunities for sustainable development.

Resolutions adopted by the World Scout Conference are important since they inevitably shape the work of both the WSC and the WSB for the period until the next World Scout Conference.

In order to illustrate ethnic diversity, this book includes perspectives on ethnicity, religion, culture, Scout culture and outdoor life. It is an addition to literature already xisting on diversity but excludes issues like sexuality, functional impairment, social diversity and gender equality. This book presents some facts on various cultures and religions. It is good to know facts but nevertheless we advise you not to take these facts for granted. People are different – we are individuals first and foremost.
