Scouters is the term used to describe adults involvment in the facilitating of Scouts in Ireland. It is an effort to change the traditional term for Adults as Leaders. The only Leaders in Scouting Ireland should be Youth Members.

The Role of the Scouters

The role of the Scouters is one of assisting, supporting, facilitating, motivating, being a role model rather than directive. Younger age ranges will require more facilitation and direction but this should be reversed in older age ranges to one of ‘mentor or coach’. The Scouters need to be aware of the young people in their Section, and understand ‘where they are’ in relation to their development as young people. Scouters will assist in reviewing activities and help young people to reflect on their experiences and personal journey through Scouting.
