Running a Beaver Colony
Week by week, thousands of ordinary people show up at Beaver meetings to empower young people to learn new skills, make new friends and learn to stand on their own two feet. No two weeks are the same, but the impact you make is always great.
Running your Colony
Getting to grips with the basics? We’ve put together everything you need to keep your section running smoothly.
Programme planning for Beavers
Our new tool is a one-stop programme planning shop. You can use it to get organised and get going.
Money Skills sessions
We've teamed up with HSBC UK to give young people the chance to learn financial skills from experts in the field. Help your Beaver Colony develop financial skills for life by signing up to our Money Skills programme.
Welcoming Beavers and moving on
Whether you’re welcoming the shyest of new Beavers, or need help preparing the eldest for Cubs, we’ve got you covered.
The YouShape Award makes it even easier to embed being youth shaped into your programme. At the same time, it’ll help young people work with their leaders to learn leadership skills that they’ll use for the rest of their lives.
