Organizations across all sectors need to show stronger commitment to board diversity and inclusion, particularly through strategies that champion and advance youth participation in decision-making processes
Coming on the backdrop of the global COVID-19 pandemic, the recently held conference helped to further galvanize and strengthen the Scout Movement in Africa in many ways.
Young people are a tremendous source of energy, creativity and values that can shape a better future, both inside Scouting and in the local communities in which they live.
Volunteering is willingly undertaking a service without being asked or forced and usually with no expectation of payment. It is renowned for skill development and is often intended to promote goodness or to improve the human quality of life. It is also about wanting to gain experience and skills to enhance one’s career prospects or start on a new career path, but in the process also impacting the people or communities you serve.
It takes deliberate effort to move from the point of visualizing how different things could be to acting and working hard towards the desired outcome. Whether it’s at work, school or in society, achieving greatness is a sacrifice. A good way to help you define your goals is by exploring unique talents, skills, and abilities that you need to develop to bring out your uniqueness. Achieving your dreams shouldn’t be at any cost. You can still get there without stepping on everyone’s toes.

The 2020 experience will undoubtedly affect our corporate and personal behaviours for many years to come. It would be very unfortunate if we fail to learn from its challenges and tap into the opportunities it has also created for innovation. Only those that are keen and intentional about embracing change will emerge better, stronger and relevant post-2020.
