International Development Projects (Brotherhood Projects)

This is where Scouting will take you: to another side of the world, working side by side with other members of Scouting, fighting poverty and inequality to make a lasting change in the world. From as early as Beaver Scouts we learn to help take care of the world, to do our best, be prepared, challenge ourselves and serve others. International development projects through ScoutsAbroad put everything you’ve learned to the test, and give you the opportunity to grow, to build your resume, to find your passion in life, and to change the world. It’s youth development through International development and it starts with Scouts.

Pen Pal Program

The ScoutsAbroad Pen Pal Program is a way for every youth, starting with the youngest Beaver Scout, can make friends with Scouts around the world. There are over 30 million Scouts in 161 countries worldwide. Through the Pen Pal Program, you can learn about different customs, learn about how scouting is different (and how it’s the same) and make new friends in every corner of the world!
