Youth involvement is a process that ensures youth have a voice in the decisions that affect their lives. It creates volunteer opportunities for youth to be a part of the changes and decisions being made in their communities.
Youth Involvement in Decision-Making is the first strategic priority in the Strategy for Scouting and it identifies three areas of work for young people to be fully involved in decision-making in the Movement.
These areas are: 
(1) Youth Involvement in the Unit; 
(2) Youth Involvement institutionally; and 
(3) Youth Involvement in civil society
