The Scouts pledge to:

  • Step up and help all young people to have every opportunity to serve others by…providing new partnerships through our A Million Hands programme, linking social action charities to thousands of local Scout groups around the UK, increasing the positive impact we have in our communities.
  • Step up and help all young people to have every opportunity to serve others by…empowering at least 250,000 young people to make a positive impact in their community each year and empowering half a million young people to take social action by 2020.
  • Step up and help all young people to have every opportunity to serve others by…supporting an extra 50,000 young people to become involved in Scouting, and encourage 5,000 more young people to become Young Leaders by 2023.
  • Step up and help all young people to have every opportunity to serve others by…starting Scouting in 500 more areas of deprivation, reaching young people who could benefit the most, and recruiting an additional 10,000 more frontline adult volunteers by 2023.
