Recruitment of Youth Members

The aim of the Scout Movement is to encourage the physical, intellectual, social, spiritual and aesthetic development of young people so that they may take a constructive place in the society. Our youth members, aged between the 4th birthday and the 26th birthday, are divided into 5 sections according to their age, namely Grasshopper Scouts, Cub Scouts, Scouts, Venture Scouts and Rover Scouts.  

Application to join a Cantonese speaking Scout group may be made via our online application platform, “Join Us”, which provides basic information of the Scout groups that are open for application.  Alternatively, applicants may submit a paper application form. For English native speakers, they may apply for an English speaking Scout group online.

Community Service

Development Branch organizes various kinds of community service and activities every year for our Scout members to put the Scout Promise into action to help the others. The target groups in recent years included the elderly, disabled and children from low-income families. In addition, regular training activites are arranged to equip our social service team members with skills and knowledge, so as to be prepared for serving the community. 

In collaboration with the government departments and other NGOs, Development Branch also coordinates for Scout members to take part in various large-scale community involvement projects including the “Youth Ambassador Against Internet Piracy Scheme” of Hong Kong Customs and Excise Department, Cyber Security Campaign organized by Hong Kong Police Force as well as Sik Sik Yuen’s “Humanitarian Community Caring Project for the Elderly”.

To promulgate the family core values such as “communication & harmony” and “love & care”, a wide range of activities with the theme of “Happy Family” are arranged for Scout members and their families every year so as to foster their mutual understanding and enhance family harmony.

Foundation Fund for the Aged

Set up in 1999, Foundation Fund for the Aged encourages Scout units to organize service to convey our concerns and support to the elderly, and to advocate the culture of inter-generation harmony. It also aims to achieve the purpose of the Scout Movement by nurturing our youth members through their involvement in the organization of and participation in the services.
