Rovers and Rangers

Rovers and Rangers are two distinct programs affiliated with the Scouts and Guides movement, providing opportunities for older youth and young adults to engage in leadership development, community service, adventure, and personal growth.

Rovers are the senior section of the Scout movement, typically for young adults aged 18 to 25. Rovers engage in more advanced scouting activities compared to their younger counterparts, focusing on leadership development, outdoor skills, and service to the community. Rovers often organize their own activities and projects, ranging from adventure expeditions to community service initiatives. The Rover Scout program aims to prepare young adults for responsible citizenship and leadership roles in society.

Rangers are the equivalent of Rovers in the Girl Guide/Girl Scout movement. Similar to Rovers, Rangers cater to older youth and young adults, offering opportunities for personal development, leadership training, and community service. Ranger units typically consist of young women aged 18 to 25 who participate in activities such as outdoor adventures, skill-building workshops, and service projects aimed at making a positive impact on their communities and the world around them. The Ranger program emphasizes self-discovery, empowerment, and social responsibility among young women.
Both Rovers and Rangers play a crucial role in the holistic development of young adults, providing them with opportunities to learn valuable life skills, contribute to their communities, and become active and responsible citizens. These programs often serve as a bridge between youth and adulthood, helping participants transition from being recipients of guidance and mentorship to becoming leaders and mentors themselves within their communities and beyond.
