Our Values

As a values based membership organisation, we ask everyone to commit to a common set of values. These values are inclusive and designed to support young people on their developmental journey.

Have Respect

We ask everyone to have respect for themselves and others, as well as the environment.  We use this commitment to ensure our members have strong positive working relationships and understand how they connect to the environment.

Do What Is Right

We ask everyone to commit to being trustworthy and tolerant, and to having integrity. For young people this means always doing the ‘right thing’. This value is about encouraging personal responsibility and broader citizenship.

Be Positive

Finally, we ask members to commit to accepting challenges with courage and to be a friend to all. This focuses on helping members use bravery to face tough times, as well connecting with people from different communities.

Scout Promise

On my honour, I promise to do my best,

To develop my spiritual beliefs,

To contribute to my community, country and world,

To help other people,

And to live by the Scout Law.
