Special Interest Areas Project Resource Updates

Two key resources for Special Interest Area projects have been updated.

The flowchart that helps Scouts Plan> their pathway to a great Special Interest Area project has been updated with new graphics and updated language of the program.

This resource provides a framework for Scouts to brainstorm possible project ideas. It starts with thinking about interests and strengths, and then to consider what could challenge that individual to know or do more with that interest. Finally, it gets the Scout to think about how they will go about it, and who they might need to support their project.

The ideas generated in this flowchart can then be used to complete the Special Interest Area planning sheet or the equivalent on Scouts | Terrain.

In addition, some clarifications and other updates to the overall guide to Special Interest Area projects has been updated. Updates include information about patrols working on a Special Interest Area project together.

The Special Interest Area Flowchart and the Guide to Special Interest Areas can be found on the Achievement Pathways page, under the Special Interest Area tab.
