Areas of Personal Growth, the Scout Method and Program Planning

This program is an abridged version of a program developed by the World Organisation of the Scout Movement (WOSM) to address the changing needs of development of our youth members and the methods we incorporate in our programs to achieve success.

To some of our scouting Leaders this program will simplly be an update, while to the others it will be a reinforcement of the methods used every day in their Scouting life.

By ensuring the AoPG and our method are the basis of everything that we do in Scouting we can guarantee that we will provide quality programs for our youth members across all sections.

“Just before the start of each term the Troop Council should meet to review the success of the program to know what activities worked well and to know what changes need to occur to the program for the next term.”
