Sign Up for 2020 NSW YOU Courses

Do you want to be a leader in scouting and your community?
Do you want to develop your understanding of yourself?
Do you want to make new friends and have a fun-filled weekend with Scouts, Venturers and Rovers just like you?

Well, the YOU course is for you!
At the NSW You Course, you will spend the weekend beginning to understand yourself and the way you work within a team. Once the weekend is over, you will feel more comfortable as a team member and leader within any team (in scouts and in your community).
We aim to encourage youth members to better understand themselves in order for them to be a successful leader within scouting and their community.

We are excited to be holding two You Courses in NSW for 2020:
Cataract 3rd-5th April 2020
Glenrock 17th-19th April 2020

If you are interested in attending, please register your interest here and we will let you know when applications open!
