#YouShape Month

February saw groups from across Nottinghamshire diving head first into #YouShape month, a month where we celebrate our commitment to Youth Shaped Scouting. Through the support of our leaders, we had young people choosing the games they play, taking part in forums, and signing the #YouShape pledge to show their ongoing commitment to Youth Shaped Scouting.

There was great participation across the county, with some great feedback from leaders as to how their young people had been inspired and empowered to take on the responsibility of shaping their Scouting experience. But remember its more than just a month, we should be adopting this approach all year around as the pledge outlines.

Many thanks to everyone who got involved over February and best of luck for your future #YouShape endeavors!
