It’s been a dream since the beginning of the new youth program journey, and it’s coming soon. A new digital system for Scouts Australia will be launched later this year.
A dynamic and exciting digital system has been part of the Program vision throughout every step of the journey. From the beginning of the youth program review, through to the launch of the Program at AJ2019, we have been excited to embark on a journey to develop a revolutionary digital system to support and empower our members into the future.
Our vision and design brief were clear – to create the best personal progression and programming tool for youth members and adults. Our new digital system will be focused around the creation and the delivery of our youth program for members, as well as effective reporting to help youth and adult leaders continue to grow Scouting.
Our new system will deliver:
It’s going to be a system that will be just as dynamic and modern as our new youth program is, and we know it will further improve the Scouting experience for all members.
Development started in January 2020 and we are well underway, with great progress so far. It will take some time to build all of the features that we know are needed to support the program and our members. Ongoing Review> and refinement is an important part of our plan, so keep in mind that some of these features might take time to perfect.
Working with our developer over the last few weeks, we have been inspired by their creativity, innovative problem solving and passion for this project. Their dedication, hard work and deep understanding on what Scouting does and why we all love to be involved is proudly on display. They’re talking our language! There is strong collaboration between the developers and Scouts Australia, and we are building the best system possible.
We intend for this system to launch in the middle of 2020.
There’s plenty more to do. We will be testing the system to ensure we’ve developed a tool that can do everything to support the delivery of the youth program. We are really excited for launch day and hopefully you are too!
