The Trust has been established mainly to promote leadership development in young people, especially through the member programme of World Scouting. We do this primarily by funding projects through grants or loans and learning from their success. We also encourage debate about how best to help young people meet the challenges facing them, and in particular empower them to develop the social and leadership skills necessary for the development of their communities and thus encourage social cohesion.
