In January 2019 we launched our new youth program at AJ2019. The National Program Space was a hive of activity, information and learning as we shared what the future of Scouting will look like.
To demonstrate the youth program’s power in fostering the development of young people, through adventurous, fun, challenging and inclusive programs, we’re excited to launch this new video for you to share.
One Program, One Journey
This video represents all that is unique about the youth program currently being implemented by some local Scout Groups across the country on an agreed schedule.

You can find the 2 min video on the front page of pr.scouts.com.au. It can also be downloaded from there, for you to use in local presentation. Note that it is 258MB so will take some time to download.

How is your role as an adult in Scouting progressing the implementation of the program in your unit?
This document provides a series of questions that can be used to reflect on your own personal development as an adult in Scouting, working with young people in units and groups. From there, you can set some goals for your own ongoing development. Don’t forget to use Plan>Do>Review>!
You can find the checklist under the Group Support tab of the Other Resources page of the PR website.
The Peak Award Notification forms have been updated.
The main change is now the ability to electronically complete the form and email it back.
They have also been updated with new branding and removal of the “Pioneers” mark and the “DRAFT” watermark.
The forms can be found under the Peak Awards tab, on the Achievement Pathways page.
The Programming Overview document has been updated based on recent feedback.
The content has been significantly reviewed and updated to bring it up to date with key messages about good programming using the four Challenge Areas.
It has also been updated with the new branding and to remove the “Pioneers” titles originally featured on this very early resource for the new program.
You can find version 2.0 in the Weekly Program page, under the Programming tab.
Two Microsoft Excel documents have been created to support program planning for Units. One is The Program Planning blank template, and the other is an example of a completed template.
These files are now combined into a single zipped toolkit for download: Program Planning Toolkit (Interim).
(These are interim while we await the development of an online digital system for program planning and the new program).
.zip files can be “unzipped” on Windows and Mac computers without installing extra software.
Go to the Weekly Program section, under the tab Programming, to find the toolkit.
The S2P Converter, for guiding your conversions from the old award scheme badges to the new Achievement Pathways, has been updated to version 3.4.
This update corrects some of the conversions and how they are written. You can see a complete list in the change log.
You can access the converter at s2p.scouts.com.au
