To achieve this Award, the Scout needs to complete activities in two areas. Examples are provided below, but other activities can also be included.

Area 1 - Exploring the Local Community

Explore one aspect of how the local community works and is organised to the benefit of its members. The project should include some initial fact-finding, a visit to or from a community facility or group, and some form of report back.

Eg: visits to see the workings of a theatre, tourist attraction, railway station, airport, local industry; meeting people involved in local government, charities, faith groups; learning about and taking part in community traditions or customs, local clubs and interest groups.



































Area 2 - Community Service

Take an active part in some form of local community service totalling at least six hours. The time may be spent doing a number of different projects or by showing commitment to a single project over a longer period of time.

Eg: running a fund-raising stall or game, delivering leaflets, clearing an area, gardening, collecting materials for recycling, helping with activities for younger children, moving furniture, clearing debris, painting fences, or environmental projects
