The Sierra Leone Scouts Youth Forum has ended a one-day National Scouts Youth Symposium on leadership, citizenship and cervical cancer for scouts across the country.

The symposium which was geared towards changing the mindset of scouts on how they should portray themselves in the community was held at the National Scouts Headquarters at New England Ville in Freetown.

Youth Program Commissioner, Sierra Leone Scouts’ Association Chernor Bah urged the participants to race against time in achieving what they want most especially educational-wise, noting, that the symposium is to educationally empower them.

He added among other things that, as scouts, they deal in mentorship, career development, leadership and communications, citing that, they want to change the narrative of people to know that scouting is not for idlers.

Scouter Marion Jones, one of the participants, commended the association for the symposium, stating that, she will be using what she has learnt to train pupils at the school that she is currently attached to.

Madam Jones encouraged other women to join the Scouts Association because they will be learning a lot on how to be responsible leaders.

Scouter Mohamed Alie Conteh on the other hand said he learnt so much about cervical cancer and how it affect people, adding that before now he had only heard about it but now knows what cancer is and the different types.

“We want to change the narrative of people that scouting is not all about marching and parading but more about educative curriculums,” he said.
