Scouting is one of the biggest youth movements in the world and Hungary. There are about 38 million Scouts working in more than countries all over the globe, with one common goal in view: to support children and young people to become active and committed adults. In the 200 groups of the Hungarian Scout Association, which was founded in 1912, there are about 10 thousand Scouts working actively, in collaboration with the Hungarian Scout communities living abroad.
Scouting is a voluntary, religious, non-governmental youth movement, which welcomes everybody, regardless of origin, gender, social or financial situation as well as religious belief. Scouting is one of the biggest youth movements in the world. The Hungarian Scout movement believes that society should consist of down-to-earth, devoted, responsible and healthy citizens, who are devoted to advance towards God through their own continuous self-improvement. Scouting provides a life model with the help of its informal means of education – the Scout method –, which focuses on small community education, learning by doing, as well as inspiring and pleasant programmes.
