Our Refugee Scouts programme helps children aged 8-16 stuck in refugee camps develop meaning, routine and identity. This age group is conscious of what displaced them and often lacks support systems to help process their trauma. This can lead to anti-social behaviour and a lack of confidence, which also inhibits learning and positive self-development from taking place.
The programme builds three core values in children: teamwork, focus, and respect, through daily English and Greek classes, homework support, creative workshops and excursions outside of the camp to explore their new home. Peer Scouts Leaders are trained to support sessions and implement activities alongside our team of qualified volunteers.
