Scouting is a Movement of progressive self-education for young people. According to Scouting’s educational approach, each person is born with a unique potential, which can be developed in a constructive direction. Making this potential a reality involves developing all of one’s capacities – physical, intellectual, emotional, social and spiritual. This is done by providing a supportive and organised learning environment, which stimulates and challenges each young person during his or her formative years.

This supportive learning elements could be found in the Youth Programme. Youth Programme in Scouting not only refers to the activities, but also to how and why they are done. Overall, activities are seen as means rather than goals in themselves, and they create opportunities for each person to develop skills, attitudes and acquire knowledge.
