FHSG Strategic Plan
2017 - 2020
The aim of this planning document is to be a living strategic plan to help guide the Flagstaff Hill Scout Group to be the best it can be and offer the best possible Scouting experience.
From building great facilities, having access to the very latest activity and camping equipment and building youth programs that offer a new and exciting pathway to the traditional scouting activities. This document helps to list and prioritise the journey.
Comments and feedback are always welcome and can be directed to the Group Leader or Committee to be added into this document.
To be recognised as a dynamic Scout Group that develops values and resilience in young people (aged 6 to 18) and teaches life skills that are relevant today and into the future in safe environments.
We aspire to maintain a strong Scouting program that is enjoyed and accessible by as many young people in the community as possible. We will achieve this by:
- Delivering a fun, adventurous and safe program that excites young people and their families to become actively involved
- Encouraging members of all ages to discover their potential through personal challenge
- Delivering Scouting’s real ‘life benefits’ to young people which are enthusiastically recognised by parents and their children.
- Using the Scout Method and SPICES (Physical, Intellectual, Social, Spiritual, Emotional development) in all areas of our group.
The following 7 goals make up our Strategic Plan
|Operate an effective structure with efficient, streamlined procedures in direct support to all members. Includes Communication, Finance, Governance|
|Develop and maintain safe, well presented and well maintained equipment, resources and facilities for Scouting|
|Provide opportunities for Youth Leadership and involvement in all aspects of Scouting and in the community.|
|Support adults in the Group to achieve through provision of training, support and mentoring|
|Pursue new opportunities to engage/involve more youth in our Group|
|Provide dynamic and active Youth Programs and promote the ‘benefits’ of Scouting to parents and the general community|
|Ensure the financial viability of the Group through best practice financial modelling, budgeting and budget management in line with strategic objectives.|
The Goals of our Strategic Plan are achieved through a range of operational plans, projects and processes put into place.
Our Group Support Committee and Leader team work on these to scope, resource and complete these tasks.
