  • Mission statement

    1st Welwyn Scouts simply aim to help give young people in the Welwyn area the best start in life!

    We do this through a weekly programme of activity:

    by offering training towards various awards (often using skilled experts),

    by encouraging teamwork by giving leadership opportunities and responsibility at an early age,

    by encouraging participation in Scouting events locally, nationally and internationally.

    Everybody involved in Scouting helps young people for nothing... Perhaps that is why it is so rewarding! There are many reasons to give some voluntary assistance:

    you or your own children may have benefitted from previous generations giving their time,

    you may be retired, looking for work or have flexible working hours and are looking for something constructive and worthwhile,

    you may want to use your skills and experience to help improve facilities within the community,

    perhaps you think that youngsters need a safe place to have fun or you'd just like to keep them off the streets!
