Skills for Life > Youth Shaped > Topic for the Term

We're launching some regular practical programme ideas that you can use with your Section to help you run a YouShape activities. In our first 'topic for the term', we focus on 'resolutions'. The activities, arranged by our Youth Shaped Working Group (thanks all!) are aimed at supporting our members make Youth Shaped easier to deliver and to encourage discussion and goal-setting amongst our young people.

January 2018 - Resolutions

We hope you had a great holiday season and a great start to 2018. As part of this new start, alongside the Youth Shaped Working Group, we have decided to roll out a termly package with programme ideas for a number of topics that may be relevant to our young people in Scouting. We have called this 'Topic for the Term'. The thinking behind this was that leaders can take the topic we give them aswell as the session plan into a meeting and so they have a meeting already planned for them and they can use these plans as a starting point to work towards badges and higher rewards.

We wanted to keep the topics as relavent to the lives of our young poeple as possible and so we have chose these issues to reflect everyday life. Our first topic, presented in this mailing, is 'RESOLUTIONS'. Our aim is to get young people thinking about 'New Years Resolutions' and get them used to goal setting and working towards their ambitions whether that is for the end of 2018 or beyond.

If you complete any of our programmes during your sessions, we would love to hear your feedback! Please share what your section did through social media or through email. If you have any questions or ways in which we can improve what we do for the next Topic of the Term, then please get in touch! We will also be in touch again soon to let you know what we have planned for YouShape Month!!
