Mission 3 – Programme Planning

Take the section’s programme ideas to a programme planning meeting.’

This mission is all about gathering programme ideas from young people and turning them into action. You will also learn how a Group and District operate, and potentially present new ideas to them.

This mission should include:
  • asking the young people in the section to contribute their ideas to the programme
  • capturing the ideas and suggestions from the young people and exploring how these could be incorporated into their programme.
  • attending and contributing to a meeting (eg programme planning meeting, leaders’ meeting, District, County/ Region or Area meeting)
To complete this mission, you could:
  • attend a section planning meeting
  • plan and run a meeting (eg section planning forum or running activities from the YouShape resources)
  • decide who should attend a meeting and invite them along
  • organise and run a forum for the young people in your section, gathering their ideas and suggestions, and feeding these back to the section leader
  • organise for someone to take notes, minutes or points of action
  • plan and run the Sixers’ or Patrol Leaders’ forum, ensuring that the young people in the section
  • understand how they can input their ideas into the section programme
  • any other ideas, subject to agreement with the ESLYL and SL
Put your phone down and what are you left with? Just teamwork, courage and the skills to succeed.’
