The Association des Scouts du Niger (in Hausa language Iskutun Niger and Zarma language Nizer Skutey), the national Scouting organization of Niger, was founded in 1947, and became a member of the World Organization of the Scout Movement in 1996. The coeducational Association des Scouts du Niger has 4,347 members as of 2004.

Scouts in Niger are active in the Africa Region and attend many International Scout camps and Jamborees with their African neighbors.

One Scout attended the 19th World Scout Jamboree in Chile in 1998 as part of the West Africa contingent.

"Working towards WAGGGS membership" is an official status by the World Association of Girl Guides and Girl Scouts acknowledging the development of an association. As of 2005, Niger has this status.
