Last week we were out in the Brecon Beacons. This week we’re up in the Lakes helping some Scouts take their first trip on the water. Where else can you make a difference and have an excellent time yourself? Scouting – it’s recommended.’
Scout Network is the fifth section of The Scout Associations youth programme and is for all young adults aged 18-25.
Scouting exists to make young people’s lives better, helping them realise their full potential and make an impact on their community. Scout Network enables this to happen through a programme of projects and events divided into three Programme Areas: Adventure, International and Community.
We have two Networks in Solihull, one in each district. Cole Network, also known as Pyro Network,
meets regularly throughout the year, whiles the newer Blythe Network tend to meet during the
School/Univeristy Holiday to support Students on their return home.
If you’re moving away from home, for example to go to university, you can carry on Scouting through Scout Network (or as an adult volunteer) by informing your County Commissioner or similar that you are relocating. They will be able to put you in contact with the County Commissioner for the area you are moving to and pass them your details.
Another option is SSAGO, the Student Scout and Guide Organisation. SSAGO has branches at many universities and is open to all students at university or higher education college in the UK.
