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.
These new skills and knowledge allow scouts and young scout leaders to become empowered citizens of both scouting and the world. Mentoring and coaching are both processes which are suitable to be used at all levels of scouting, from the local group to larger scale projects, for example a Nationally run initiative.
