Scouts Speak Up Training For Young People Are you a youth member of Scouting? Can you convey first-hand the fun, challenge, adventure and global citizenship that Scouting offers? Do you know an Explorer Scout, older Scout (13+) who is keen to promote Scouting and learn more about the media?

In recent years, Scouting has put young people at the heart of its communications work and this workshop will help candidates get their message across - talking with print media, speaking directly with journalists, including radio and TV interviews in front of the camera.

Recently Scouting has encouraged young people to be at the forefront of promoting the Movement and the principles in which they believe - to local Councillors, to MPs at a national level and to engage with their communities and decision makers to effect lasting change at a local level.

The Scouts Speak Up (SSU)/Young Spokesperson (YSP) workshop experience is a specially designed course for our young people to offer everything they need to know to achieve the following:
