|About||Clyde Region support Scout Groups across the City of Glasgow, East Dunbartonshire, East Renfrewshire and North & South Lanarkshire to provide fun, safe, challenging and adventurous activities to over 5000 young people.|
|Mission||The Scout Association provides adventurous activities and personal development opportunities for 400,000 young people aged 6-25. Internationally, we have over 28 million young people enjoying the benefits of Scouting across 216 countries. Personal development means promoting the physical, intellectual, social and spiritual well-being of the individual, helping them achieve their full potential. In Scouting, we believe that young people develop most when they are 'learning by doing,' when they are given responsibility, work in teams, take acceptable risks and think for themselves.|
Through the adventure of Scouting, young people get to take risks in a safe environment, and have their first taste of responsibility. We give young people experiences they'll never forget. In Scouting, we provide over 200 activities from abseiling to zorbing ('that's falling out of the sky in a foam ball in case you were wondering). If we don't have an instructor who can help we can normally find someone who can. But Scouting isn't just about activities for their own sake. We encourage our young people to feel the buzz of the challenge and then reflect on what that means. Did they have fun? Do they feel more confident? Would they do it again?
All this is made possible by the efforts of more than 1,250 voluntary adult leaders. With award winning training and one-to-one support, we make sure that each one of our volunteers gets to make the best use of their skills and talents. It's something different from the norm, and that why a lot of people like it.' In fact, it's what's made us the largest co-educational youth Movement in the country.
