Dear Friends in Scouting, Happy International Volunteer Day!
In a rapidly changing world, Scouting is more relevant than ever, especially for those who need it the most. As we evolve and grow together, volunteering is at the heart of Scouting and connects to this year’s theme for International Volunteer Day - Volunteer for an inclusive future. The idea encourages us to play our part in ensuring everyone around us is treated with respect and is able to live a fulfilled life.
As one of the world’s largest volunteer-based movements, Scouting wouldn’t be possible without the selfless support and dedication of more than five million of our volunteers (yes, this includes you!). Without you, we could not have reached more than 54 million young people today, creating impactful and life-changing experiences for them through our uniquely crafted programmes, events, and activities.
