Beavers YouShape Award

At Scouts, young people learn how to speak up and take the lead. But they told us that the programme didn’t recognise this enough. That’s what the new YouShape Award is all about.

The award is split into four badges. Young people will earn the central badge first, then they’ll choose the order in which they earn the rest. They can choose which requirements (and how many requirements) they do, as well as what they want to do for each requirement. They’ll work with their leader to decide when they’ve met each requirement. 

Central badge

This badge is all about thinking about what you want to achieve, setting a goal, and making it happen.

Plan

This badge is all about thinking creatively, working together, and planning some exciting activities for your programme.

Lead

Now it’s time to take the lead – think supporting others, delivering your programme, and stepping up on nights away.

Represent

Think about how you’ll represent your group – you could engage your community, invite some friends to join the fun, or chat to your Executive Committee.
