Scouts and Guides of France
The Scouts and Guides of France are a Catholic movement of popular education that aims to train active citizens, happy and peacemakers. It focuses on a pedagogy of the game, the project, the team, life in nature. It offers young girls and boys a living space that meets their need to dream, to act, to succeed in their projects, to live in community, to give meaning to their lives.
In May 2004, the general assemblies of 'Scouts de France' (created in 1920 and recognised as an association of public utility in 1927) and 'Guides de France' (created in 1923 and recognised as an association of public utility in 1943) decided to become a single association.
