Scouting in the Czech Republic

Zahraniční

Junak – Czech Scouting is the largest non-formal educational NGO for children and youth in the Czech Republic and a cofounder of the Czech Council of Children and Youth. Our organisation stays faithful to the missions, methods and principles of the World Organisation of the Scout Movement (WOSM), the World Association of Girl Guides and Girl Scouts (WAGGGS) and the International Scout and Guide Fellowship (ISFG) as an active and collaborative member.

Czech Scouting and Guiding movement began its activities in 1911 and experienced a lengthy persecution by both Nazi and Communist regimes in the course of 20th century. Yet, Czech Scouts and Guides always proved resilience and followed the Scouting mission.

Creating a better world

The mission of Junak – Czech Scouting is to encourage positive forming of chidlren’s and youth’s personality, intellect, spirituality, morality and social and physical skills. Our organisation helps to prepare new generations to become responsible not only to themselves, but also to their country, nature and all human society in harmony with movement’s universal principles.

We are growing

The number of members of Junak – Czech Scouting reached over 60 500 in 2018, preserving the trend of steady growth since 2006. Our organisation maintains the positive development also in other fields. We finished the process of educational programme renovation recently, currently focusing on its implementation and continuous development of new tools. We also launched a project for quality assessment, which provides all organization units with criteria to evaluate their Scouting activities, leading to improvement of the Scout programme.
