The Network section is an exciting and dynamic program designed for young adults aged 18 to 25 years old. It offers a flexible and diverse range of activities, allowing members to shape their scouting experience based on their interests and aspirations.

Network Scouts have the opportunity to take part in a wide variety of adventurous activities, community service projects, and social events. They can engage in outdoor pursuits such as hiking, camping, climbing, and water sports, as well as develop leadership, teamwork, and life skills through training and mentoring opportunities. The Network section also provides a platform for young adults to connect with like-minded individuals, make new friends, and build lasting relationships within the scouting community.

Network Scouts have the freedom to plan and organize their own activities, participate in national and international events, and take on leadership roles within the other sections. The Network section promotes personal development, encourages independence, and offers a supportive environment for young adults to continue their scouting journey and make a positive impact in their communities.
