With the help of John Neysmith, you will learn that World Scouting today is not what you may think. Today’s Scouting is 110 years old, in 169 countries world-wide, with just over 50 million members of both genders. And Scouting is no longer a northern hemisphere, developed country movement. Over 80% of our members are in the developing countries worldwide. The young people in these areas face a constant struggle to avoid the perils of drug abuse and the influence of street gangs.
