Scouting and resilience go hand in hand. Previous studies* on Scouting and resilience show what we Scouts, parents and Leaders see every day as our youth members grow towards their potential. Scouts Australia is now conducting our own research on the impact of Scouting on young Australians. By doing so, youth members are not only helping Scouts, but can also go in the draw for one of three JB Hi-Fi vouchers!

Now it’s time for us to explore the impact of Scouting on young Australians. Scouts Australia invites youth members to participate in an easy to answer online survey. The answers will help us fine tune our program to improve overall resilience in young people. The results will also help us communicate to others what we know – that Scouting develops resilience in young people everywhere.
By doing so, three youth members could win one of three JB Hi-Fi vouchers. First prize is a $250 voucher, second prize is a $150 voucher and third prize is a $100 voucher.
Cub Scouts, Scouts,Venturer Scouts and Rover Scouts are invited to participate. The survey will take around 30 minutes for a Cub Scout, and less time for older youth members to complete.
Just click onto the survey via the button below or logon to ry.org.au/scouts/ Before you do, please take note of the survey login number for your Branch that you’ll need to start.
You may wish to conduct this during your weekly meetings on a mobile device.
The survey is being conducted by Resilient Youth Australia, the same company that conducts resilience surveys for the education sector. Answers will be kept confidential.
At the end of the survey, participants may complete an entry form for the chance to win a $250, $150 or $100 JB Hifi voucher. The entry form does not link to any answers on the survey form and members’ confidentiality will be paramount. One entry will be selected for each voucher. Winners will be notified by their Branch. Please see below for further terms of the draw.
Please enter the number for your Branch at the start of the survey.
The survey and entries to the draw will be open until the 31st of August 2019.
