Network

Basics

Scout Network gives opportunities to 18-25 year olds who have an interest in Scouting, their own personal development and having fun.

Programme

Scout Network members take part in a variety of activities, which they undertake and organise themselves under the leadership of a District Scout Network Commissioner and sometimes with the support of a Programme Coordinator.
The Programme is divided into three Programme Areas: Community, International and Adventure.

Joining

All young adults, that are members of the association and are aged between 18 and 25 in Scouting are members of the Scout Network.
This applies to members holding the following roles:
•    Section Leader / Assistant Section Leader (all sections)
•    Group Scout Leader / Assistant Group Scout Leader
•    Scout Active Support Manager
•    District Commissioner / Deputy District Commissioner / Assistant District Commissioner
•    District Explorer Scout Commissioner
•    District Scout Network Commissioner
•    District Scouter / District Explorer Scout Leader
•    County Commissioner / Deputy County Commissioner / Assistant County Commissioner (including Area/Region/Bailiwick alternatives)
•    County Training Manager / Local Training Manager (including Area/Region/Bailiwick alternatives)
•    County Scouter (including Area/Region/Bailiwick alternatives)
•    Safeguarding Awareness Co-ordinator
•    County Media Manager (including Area/Region/Bailiwick alternatives)

Explorer Scouts who are approaching their 18th birthday will be automatically transitioned  to the District Scout Network in which they undertook their Explorer Scouting. After this, they can choose to join other District Scout Networks or adjust their membership so that they are members of the UK Scout Network only.

Young adults who are not members of a District Explorer Scout Unit can make contact with the District Scout Network Commissioner who will take them through the joining process.
