About this cause
Young people in the Scouts take part in an exciting programme of activities from kayaking to coding. They develop character skills like resilience, initiative and tenacity, as well as employability skills such as leadership, teamwork and problem solving. The youngsters also learn practical skills like cooking and first aid. At 1st Upminster we have our own site which is also available to other community groups. We would like to improve the facilities we have and be able to offer more to not only our Scout group but the local community as a whole.
How this cause brings people in the community together
The meeting room will be used for our young people to meet in a safe and friendly environment and will be available for use by the local community.
