Scout Network

Scout Network is the section of Scouting for young adults aged 18–25 years. Members in this section take part in a programme of activities organised by Districts, often on a monthly or drop-in basis. They are also encouraged to complete Top Awards such as the King’s Scout Award and the Duke of Edinburgh’s Award scheme.

World Scout Moot (Portugal)

The World Scout Moot is an event for Network members and other young adult members, gathering up to 5,000 people. The event provides an opportunity for young adults in Scouting to meet together with the objective of improving their international understanding as citizens of the world.

The next Moot will take place in Portugal from 25 July to 3 August 2025, and The Scout Association intends to organise a UK National Contingent of members, to prepare for and travel to this event.

Going to university

Your Scouting journey doesn’t have to end when you go to university! Loads of universities up and down the country are a member of the Student Scout and Guide Organisation (SSAGO) and will have their own SSAGO at the university.

If you want to find out more and discover if your university has a SSAGO, visit the SSAGO website.

There isn’t a membership restriction on joining SSAGO, so if you’re already a member of your District Scout Network you can still be an active member of SSAGO whilst remaining an active member of your local Scout Network.
