What is the YouShape Award?
The YouShape Award has been in development for a while but it is finally here!
This award aims to embed youth shaped Scouting into all programmes and sections. The award is available for young people from Beavers to Explorers, becoming progressively more challenging throughout.
There are four parts to this award: the central badge, lead, plan and represent. Each of these parts has its own badge which together form the whole YouShape award.
The best part about this award is that the young people have complete ownership of their experience. They decide which criteria they complete, how they complete them and when they have achieved the badge.
