Through our various youth-led programmes, Scouting Ireland delivers a range of opportunities for young people to develop their skills, talents and leadership potential through outdoor adventure and by working with their Scout Group. Our programmes focus' on a system of progressive self-education, known as the Scout Method, which aims to nurture the mental, physical and holistic growth and development of young people of all ages.
Currently, there are nearly 500 Scout Groups across Northern Ireland and the Republic of Ireland.
Service to others is an important element of the Scout Method.
As Scouts, we stand for friendship, compassion, respect, and peace. Scouting supports young people to become active citizens and to work to create a better world through their Scout Group in their local community. Scouting empowers young people to create peace in their communities.
