What does the Bureau do?

The World Scout Bureau promotes the unity of the Movement by supporting the organisation of Scout events. It also builds partnerships with other international organizations to advance WOSM’s mission to be the world’s leading educational youth movement.

The Bureau supports the functions of the World Scout Conference and World Scout Committee. Together with volunteer teams, it delivers on the operational plans related to the Strategy for Scouting. The Bureau also supports National Scout Organizations through WOSM Services and other means to develop Scouting and expand in countries and communities where Scouting does not currently exist.
