It’s important to recall the Purpose of Scouting:
The Purpose of the Scout Movement is to contribute to the development of young people in achieving their full physical, intellectual, emotional, social and spiritual potentials as individuals, as responsible citizens and as members of their local, national and international communities.
To support Scouts to develop in these areas of personal growth (also known as SPICES), there are some tools available.
Firstly, there is the SPICES I-Statements. These are the educational objectives of each age section, presented in the format of “I can…”
There is also the SPICES Review Tool. Patrols and Unit Councils can use this tool to review a program cycle and determine how well each of the SPICES has been implemented in the program.
Both have been updated, mainly with the new Scouts Australia branding. The Review Tool has some additional information that connects SPICES and Challenge Areas.
