Scouts Speak Up Training For Young People
Are you a youth member of Scouting? Can you convey
first-hand the fun, challenge, adventure and global
citizenship that Scouting offers? Do you know an
Explorer Scout, older Scout (13+) who is keen to promote
Scouting and learn more about the media?
In recent years, Scouting has put young people at the heart of its
communications work and this workshop will help candidates get
their message across – talking with print media, speaking directly with
journalists, including radio and TV interviews in front of the camera.
Recently Scouting has encouraged young people to be at the
forefront of promoting the Movement and the principles in which
they believe – to local Councillors, to MPs at a national level and to
engage with their communities and decision makers to effect lasting
change at a local level.
The Scouts Speak Up (SSU)/Young Spokesperson (YSP) workshop experience is a specially designed course
for our young people to offer everything they need to know to achieve the following:
To enhance the skills and confidence needed to talk about their experiences in Scouting to a
wide variety of audiences.To learn how to plan and carry out campaigns with the media about the Scouting activities
they are involved in. To influence others of the value of what they are doing so that they are able to act as spokespeople for
local Scouting – whether this means sitting on the BBC Breakfast sofa or speaking to local businesses
To develop their presenting skills.
