Learning Opportunities

In Scouting, we speak of learning opportunities as all experiences and situations that young people can learn from, be they organised or spontaneous. Where there are opportunities to learn, and to find strategies for the adequate resolution of the challenges that arise, our young people develop  competencies that serve them well no matter what they choose to do with their lives. Taking into account the vitality and energy of young people, Scouting’s proposal is based on the concept of these learning opportunities, meaning that every activity, project, experience, role and responsibility within group life contribute to the young person’s development.

Step 6 of the GPS shows the importance of generating learning opportunities that respond both to the interests and needs of young people as well as to the educational purpose of the Scout Movement.
