What kind of community engagement events are Scouts involved in? We are currently collecting survey information on how Scouting engages in local communities. This can be anything from visiting an aged care facility with your Cubs, to the local bottle drive that your Group does every weekend. We’re looking for all kinds of examples from the local communities and we want YOU to fill out our survey!
Currently, there are no national publications aimed at youth members outside of the Rover Scout section (with the exception of section record books). Olympia Patrol was requested by the National Publications Committee to provide youth input regarding whether such publications should be created, and if so, what topics they should cover and what formats they should be available in. After conducting patrol discussions and collecting youth opinion via the Youth Publications Survey, we created the following report with recommendations for the development of national youth publications: Youth Publications.
Olympia Patrol was requested by the National Adviser for Special Needs, Peter Blatch, to provide youth input on several focus questions regarding youth members with special needs. After contacting youth members, Leaders and parents of youth with special needs and engaging in patrol discussions, we created the following report with recommendations for National and Branch policy: Including Youth With Special Needs.
