“Mission Adventure 2013” – an Example for Development and Growth of Scouting through Quality
By Rupert Schildböck On 30 May 2013 · Leave a Comment
(Paris/SGdF) – The “Scouts et Guides de France” (SGdF, one of the National Scout Associations in France) again pose a challenge to the general public: experience the adventure of Scouting for a weekend – and then join the world’s largest youth movement!
Like in previous years, the project “Mission Adventure 2013” is targeted at Monsieur & Madame Tout-le-monde and in particular at their children (in other words members of the general public) who are invited to discover different aspects of Scouting over a weekend this spring.
“With this activity”, explains SGdF’s project leader Mathieu Bellay, “the association aims at three things: (1) We want to offer the opportunity to live Scouting to more children and young people, (2) we want to increase the number of volunteer leaders engaged in Scouting, and (3) we want to raise the retention rate of current members by further improving the quality of the programme offered by our local Scout Groups”.
“To achieve this, a team of Scout activity Leaders and teachers has developed high quality programme ideas for a model weekend”, explains Elise Drouet, from the International Team of SGdF, “with a particular focus on the fundamentals of Scouting: a project kit is available for local Groups to facilitate preparation, organisation, communication and managing of their weekend. And we have also produced posters, templates for invitations and banners.”
Local Scout Groups participating in the project can adjust the programme ideas and publicity tools to their specific needs. And then, youth members will invite theirs friends (and the families of their friends) to discover Scouting during an action packed weekend. Special posters or flyers may attract other interested young people. And in addition – and via a special website, the public can also directly identify a Group in a given area and register for one of the “Mission Adventure 2013” weekends.
“This year”, says Mathieu, “our aim is to involve a minimum of 300 local groups across the country. And through them at least 3000 participants aged between 6 and 25 years, of which 600 will hopefully join the Scout Movement by July 2013.”
That these goals are not too far fetched show last year’s figures: some 2409 participants enjoyed typical Scouting activities organised by 264 local Groups all over France, with 493 of them subsequently joining as youth member or volunteer!
So, if you read this and know someone who might want to find out more about the Scouting experience in France, tell her or him to check the “Mission Adventure 2013” website and not to miss one of the exciting weekends!
