Young people lead the way with like-minded charity partners in a bid to make a real, long-lasting impact across all communities…Doing what Scouts do
‘I’ve been in Scouts since I was six. When I was seven, my dad passed away, so I saw Scouts as something I could really throw myself into. It took my mind off things during that tough time; I had so many good experiences and so eventually I wanted to give something back.’
Jack Abrey, a student and Scout volunteer, is one of the inspiring and amazing young people that form the Scouts’ Community Impact Group (CIG). Jack is Chair of the CIG, which is formed of mostly young people in Scouts between the ages of 14–21.
It was formed as the driving force behind an exciting project where giving something back is key: A Million Hands.
