Community Involvement is part of the activities of many Sections and Scout Groups. Scouting members are active participants in many community-oriented events occurring in March and April, including Clean-Up Australia Day, Harmony Day and ANZAC Day commemorations.
The Adventure Begins! Resource packs have been distributed to Scout Groups across the country to ensure all Groups have a good understanding of the fundamentals of Scouting. Considering the many community-based activities in March and April, now is a great time to explore Community Involvement, a part of the Scout Method.
Active Community Involvement might also enable you to register activities as Messenger of Peace projects.
Messengers of Peace is a global initiative encouraging members to become global active citizens and realise one of Baden-Powell’s visions for Scouting – to be a “Global Network of Service”. Through actions locally, nationally and internationally, Scouts and non-Scouting members are working together making a difference in the community, creating a better world.
