The vision’s key priority areas include but not limited to; Youth forum, Youth Involvement, Messengers of Peace, Partnership and Communication. Youth Forum - It’s important to ensure all NSO/NSAs participate in Youth Forums at all levels, during the Conference, National and Zonal by sending 2 delegates and a maximum of 3 observers to the forum and each must be between 18-26yrs. Youth involvement – We are also encouraging all NSO/NSAs to have youths represented at all National levels and in decision-making bodies and to also create opportunities, growth, mentorship and empowerment to the youth. Messengers of Peace is a global project that has greatly impacted Africa through funding projects, trainings and helping the youths share ideas and activities through the online platform. NSOs are encouraged to actively participate in the MOP project and recruit more members. Communication - Its the greatest weapon and channel to success and information and its in this we have a created a platform to share and exchange ideas and activities in our countries through (6th-7th AFRICA SCOUT Youth Forum Page) on Facebook.
