Explorers 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 and then choose the order they earn the rest. They can choose which requirements (and how many) as well as what they want to do, and work with their leader to decide when they've met each requirement.
