In February 2015, 2016, 2017 and 2018, we celebrated all things Youth Shaped for a whole month. We're now focusing on embedding this traditional part of Scouting into what we do.

You can still access resources and reports from the last few years. The 2018 YouShape postcards are a great place to look for activity ideas to embed Youth Shaped Scouting into your section.
