Join the New Youth Program

Get your Group Checklist Ready

Before applying for the New Youth Program, your Group will need to complete the Scouts NSW New Youth Program Readiness Checklist, to gauge how ready you are to take on the Program.

We want to make sure everyone is as ready as they can be before they transition to ensure Groups have a strong grounding to support the New Youth Program. The checklist also helps you decide when the best time for you Group to transition would be and how you are going to go about this process.

Don’t worry if you can't tick off everything quite yet - just keep on working through it while also continuing to build your excitement for the New Youth Program! We can't wait to see you come on this journey with us, so let’s make sure we are as prepared as we can be for the exciting times ahead!

This is it! It is now time for you to complete your New Youth Program Application! There are a few important questions for you to answer to help us know how to best assist you in your transition, so make sure you take your time and are prepared with the supporting materials outlined on your Readiness Checklist.

We know that you are just as excited as us to come on this journey, so we will endeavour to reach out to you in regard to the progress of your application within 5-7 days – please be patient, we are all volunteers too.

The beginning of your journey to transition onto the New Youth Program is only one application away! We can't wait to hear from you!
