The Fédération Ivoirienne du Scoutisme, the national federation of several Scouting organizations of the Côte d'Ivoire, was founded in 1937, and became a member of the World Organization of the Scout Movement in 1972. The coeducational Fédération Ivoirienne du Scoutisme has 6,436 members as of 2004.

The Scout Federation of Côte d'Ivoire consists of three Scout associations, Les Scouts Catholiques de Côte d'Ivoire (The Catholic Scouts of Côte d'Ivoire), Les Eclaireurs Laïcs de Côte d'Ivoire (The Scouts of Côte d'Ivoire) and the Les Eclaireurs Unionistes de Côte d'Ivoire (Unionist Guides and Scouts of Côte d'Ivoire).

Scouting in the Ivory Coast has an emphasis on community service. There is a great deal of activity in local Scouting and a good record of social action, especially in the development of youth and cultural centers for the vocational training of young people.
