What We Do
World Scouting mobilises millions of young people through our Messengers of Peace, Earth Tribe and other initiatives to learn about and take action for peace, equality and sustainable development.
World Scouting convenes some of the world’s largest youth events such as the Jamboree, Moot and JOTA-JOTI bring young people and volunteers together to learn new skills and experience different cultures.
We provide support to our membership of 173 National Scout Organizations to provide quality scouting to more young people through our cutting-edge WOSM Services platform and other capacity strengthening opportunities
