“I owe a lot to Scouting. It had to be the most fantastic influence on my life. It taught me responsible risk-taking.”
– Dick Smith

Dick Smith was a Scout for 14 years. He earned the Baden-Powell Award in 1966, and attributes much of his success in life to the lessons he learnt in Scouting.


“Scouting provided me with memories, skills and friendships that will last my lifetime. I was shown great leadership and as a result, I believe I became a good team player in the game of life”
– Shane Jacobson

Shane Jacobson is a former Scout but recently appointed Chief Scout of Victoria and the lead actor in the famous Australian comedy movie Kenny. The character of Kenny runs a porta-loo business and is described as “A lovable guy in a not so lovable job”.
