Dear Leaders,

18th Scouts Of The World Award – Discovery Workshop

Greetings from the Singapore Scout Association (SSA)!

A flagship initiative under WOSM’s Better World Framework, the Scouts of the World Award (SWA) provides young people with opportunities to face challenges of the future. It aims to empower and engage young people in taking actions of world importance based on the universal values of freedom, tolerance, equality, respect for nature, and shared responsibilities; criteria similarly identified by the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals. There are two parts to the SWA – the Discovery Workshop and a Voluntary Service project.

The Discovery Workshop exposes young people to global issues that our Earth and Country are facing using an experiential model – to ExploreRespond and Take Action.  Apart from raising awareness on our communities-at-large and rich natural heritage, the workshop seeks to equip youths with development, facilitation, and planning skills in preparation for their Voluntary Service projects.

Participants are required to achieve full attendance for all the modules.

Please refer to Annex A for the details.

Registration is based on a first-come-first-served basis. Unit leaders are required to register your Venture Scouts through Scout Youth Programme Registration portal while self-registration for Rover Scouts can be made through Scout Adult Programme Registration portal.
