Scouts of the World Award

Introduction

The Scouts of the World Award challenges all young people aged 15-26, Scouts and non-Scouts, to reflect upon global issues and act upon them on a local level. It is the only award for youths provided by World Scouting.

In 2014, the Scouts of the World Award celebrates its 10th Anniversary! World Scouting seizes this opportunity to relaunch the programme. You will soon find on this page an updated version of the Programme Guidelines.
