In the Scouts we have a saying: You only get one childhood. Make it count.
That’s why we encourage our young people to do more, learn more and be more.
We believe in bringing people together. We celebrate difference and stand against intolerance today, tomorrow and every day.
We develop the leaders of the future: nearly half a million of them in the UK and 50 million worldwide, taking part in Scouting adventures each week. We teach skills, not just tent pitching, but teamwork, resilience and tenacity – the stuff that makes the difference.
A 2018 report says Scouts are 17% more likely to show leadership skills and work well in teams. They’re a third more likely to support their communities too. Scouts have gone on to become presidents and Olympians. They’ve even walked on the moon.
The World Organization of the Scout Movement (WOSM) announced Bear as it's first ever Chief Ambassador to World Scouting. Bear is so proud to take on this global position with the aim to encourage young people worldwide to go for it in their lives, to find their adventures and to know the power of courage, kindness and never giving up. Bear has been the youngest ever Chief Scout in the United Kingdom for nearly a decade now and will continue that role alongside his new position.
