Our Strategy

Better Prepared - Our Strategy for 2015-2025

Our 10 year strategy named ‘Better Prepared’ was launched on Saturday 23 May in Wellington, with the leadership team brought together from all over New Zealand. 

The Better Prepared strategy will see the Movement preparing to achieve their vision ”that in 2025 more than 25,000 youth will enjoy scouting adventures. They will come from every background, with a place for all, shape their own experiences, and make a positive difference for New Zealand”.

To achieve this, they will focus on five key priorities identified in the Better Prepared plan – youth at the centre, inclusive growth, quality relevant programmes, prepared volunteers and organisational strength.

Better Prepared is for all of us.  When all of us - youth, leaders, volunteers and staff focus on the Better Prepared Priorities, and work as One Team in the same direction, we are a powerful force for future Scouting.

Expressions of Interest - Better Prepared Projects

Are you willing and able to contribute to projects to deliver on our Better Prepared Strategic Plan?

Help us achieve our vision faster: that in 2025 we will have 25,000 youth enjoying Scouting adventures! By combining our collective wisdom and time, we can harness our internal resources and external connections.  This includes parents and others who may have suitable skill sets and are prepared to join our exciting journey.

Currently we are gathering expressions of interest in five areas: Digital Technology, Asset and Property Management, Investment and Fund Management, Community and Stakeholder Engagement and Creative Media. 

Some projects may not commence immediately, but if you are interested in being part of the Better Prepared journey, please complete the Survey Monkey questionnaire linked below.  We are also keen for Youth Members to be part of our journey, so please pass this on to Venturers and Rovers who want to get involved!

Better Prepared Priorities and Actions

Better Prepared is a direction, not a blueprint. The strategy doesn’t detail every step we need to take over the next ten years. Our practical actions in the five priorities (shown below) will evolve over time. At the same time, some useful actions have already been identified. Our members will see and become part of new initiatives – but keep in mind that we can’t do everything at once.
