It took us only one year to grow our youth membership by 12% and that was simply by letting people know how relevant Scouting still is today. We are not an organisation of the past. We work hard to understand the needs of young people today and work to deliver that in every group. Of course we still have some of our traditional values and elements of the programme, but if we took them all away what would we do? We could always spend our Scout nights and weekends playing on games consoles - but why would people want to come and do that - they can do that at home any night of the week! For that reason we try and provide a mix of both - take a look at our videos opposite and better understand how Scouting has changed over the years.
The City of Hull District is there to support the nineteen groups that offer weekly Scouting within Hull, providing a vibrant, exciting and adventurous programme for all of our members. As a Scout District we will lead Scouting in the City of Hull ensuring that we provide a good quality programme for our young people that takes us forward into the future, working towards the 2018 vision of the Scout Association which says (among other things) that Scouting will be more 'youth led'.
The City of Hull district is part of the Humberside Scout County. It is made up of what was until May 2012 three Hull districts, East, North and West Hull and additionally Kingston Scout Group which between them had just over 800 members. Since the merger, the district have built up relationships with local businesses, the city council and organisations to support Scouting in Hull. We have produced a calendar of events for our members both young and old to be involved with - Who is to say that fun has to stop just because you get older!

Scouting in Hull continues to grow. During 2015 we have opened two new groups and relaunched two others. We are committed to making Scouting available to as many young people as possible within the Hull area.
In 2016 we are already planning the opening of another two groups to provide Scouting in the Fountain Road area as well as Boothferry Estate.

There are many ways you can kick-start your adventure, as a young person, parent or adult volunteer. Our volunteers get involved on their terms and not all roles involve working with young people. If you can give a little time (or a lot) to help improve young lives in your community, we'd love to hear from you.
