#YouShape 2017


February sees #YouShape month take place across the UK. This national initiative, run by The Scout Association is being supported by Cole Valley South and it would be great to see as many groups as possible get involved.

We will be supplying every section with a 12 page Youth Shaped Scouting guide developed by the Birmingham County Youth Team. These guides give you some activity ideas to help you implement Youth Shaped Scouting. The guides will be distributed via our District Youth Commissioner Sophie Bourne, so please look out for her at your District Leader Meetings. Please do have a read through and utilise this booklet. Some of the activities only take 10 minutes, and are great fun for our Young People!

We would love to show the National Youth Team the excellent work that goes on across Cole Valley South, not just in #YouShape month, but at every colony, pack, troop & unit meeting, every single week! To do this, we ask that you use social media to connect with the activities that will be going on.

For more information about #YouShape 2017, please have a chat with Sophie or visit www.scouts.org.uk/youshape
