The mission of Scouting is to contribute to the education of young people, through a value system based on the, to help build a better world where people are self-fulfilled as individuals and play a constructive role in society.
This is achieved by:
Involving them throughout their formative years in a non-formal educational process
Using a specific method that makes each individual the principal agent of his or her development as a self-reliant, supportive, responsible and committed person
Assisting them to establish a value system based upon spiritual, social and personal principles as expressed in the Promise and Law.
As a global Movement, making a real contribution to creating a better world
We see Scouting entering its second century as an influential, value-based educational Movement focused on achieving its mission, involving young people working together to develop their full potential, supported by adults who are willing and able to carry out their educational role.
We see scouting world-wide as attracting and retaining more and more young people (especially adolescents) of both genders and coming from broader segments of society.
We see Scouting as attractive to adults, women and men, in all cultures - a Movement through which they can make a significant contribution to society by working with young people.
We see Scouting as a dynamic, innovative Movement with adequate resources, simple structures and democratic decision making processes where organisation, management and communication are effective at all levels.
