The creation or revision of your NSO’s Educational Proposal is the first step in the GPS process for designing or reviewing the Youth Programme in your NSO. Based on the Mission of Scouting, adopted by the World Scout Conference in Durban, 1999, your NSO’s Educational Proposal should be reviewed every few years to ensure that it is still relevant and attractive.
Your NSO’s Educational Proposal should express the set of ideas and fundamental definitions, that constitutes its purpose and identity, specifying its educational intention and the ways this intention will be carried out.
This section discusses the elements your NSO’s Educational Proposal might contain. It offers a list of questions; the answers will form the basis of your document. A set of 10 tools is available to guide your NSO through the several steps identified to develop an Educational Proposal.
