Our associations

“The Union aims at gathering, in one same community of faith, prayer and action, the various national associations of the European Guides and Scouts, the fundamental objective of which is to educate young people by using Baden Powell’s traditional scouting methods, based on the Christian values at the roots of our common European civilisation” (item 1.2.1. of the statutes).

At the beginning of 2017, our Union counts 63 000 members in 21 associations:
