I. Go Ahead!

Look at the photos which show young people participating in different activities and say to what youth organizations they may belong. In which activities would you like to take part and why?

Example: The boys and girls in photo I are on a hike in the mountains.

They may be members of a tourist club. I wish I could join them as I’m a great lover of nature.

II. Reading

Read the extracts from four articles about youth organizations and match the photos to the proper articles.

Popular British Youth Movement

Youth and youth movement have become important factors in the life of the country. In Britain, numerous youth organizations have been formed since the Second World War, uniting young people from all classes and sections of the population. There are about 60 youth organizations in Great Britain. The British Youth Council represents the youth of the country both nationally and internationally. All youth organizations can be divided into three large groups:

1. non-political organizations; 2. youth organizations associated with political parties;

3. youth organizations controlled by religious bodies.

The two largest non-political youth organizations are the associations of the Boy Scouts and the Girl Guides. There are about 1300000 boys and girls in them. The membership is voluntary. The Scout Association was formed in 1907 by General Baden-Powell. His idea was to train boys in mapping, signalling, knotting, first aid and all the skills that would arise from camping and outdoor activities. Most important of all for a Scout was to make a promise that he would do his best to do his duty to God and the Queen, to help other people and to obey the Scout Laws. The Boy Scouts have a left-handed handshake, a special badge and the motto “Be Prepared”. The Scout Laws embrace “honour, obedience, cheerfulness, thrift and cleanliness in thought and deed”.

The Scout movement was intended for boys from 11 to 14 (15), but in 1916 Robert Baden-Powell introduced a programme for younger people. He called them Wolf Cubs. They had a special uniform, badges, a special training system and the motto “Do your best!” The Wolf Cub pack is based on Kipling’s “Jungle Book” about learning to survive.

The Girl Guides Association was founded by Robert Baden-Powell in 1910. It’s divided into three sections: Brownies (from 7.5 to 11), Guides (from 11 to 16), Rangers (from 16 to 21). The programme of training is planned to develop intelligence and practical skills including cookery, needlework, and childcare. Like a Scout, a Girl Guide must be a friend to animals.

Plast, Ukrainian Scouts

Plast was established in 1911, soon after scout movement was founded by Robert Baden-Powell in 1907, and already in 1912 in Lviv, Ukraine its members swore the First Plast Oath. Among the founders of Plast there were Dr. Oleksandr Tysovskyi, Petro Franko (son of Ivan Franko - famous Ukrainian poet, writer, political writer and public activist), and Ivan Chmola. The word ‘Plast’ comes from Ukrainian word ‘plastun’ which was the name of Scouts of Ukrainian Cossacks.

The goal of Plast is to promote an all-round, patriotic education and selfeducation of Ukrainian youth on Christian principles. In order to reach this educational goal, Plast uses such basic principles as free-will membership, education and learning through game and work, a gradual system of studies and trials, self-governing in a circle, encouragement of initiative and selfmanagement, perception of nature and living in nature, support of special interests and talents in children and youth.

Unlike most scouting organizations in the world where membership is limited by the age of 25 years, membership in Plast is lifelong. Conventionally, membership falls into four age groups: Cub Scouts (age 6-12), Rover Scouts (12-18), Older Plast members (18-35) and Senior Plast members (those who turned 35). All educational and administrative work in Plast is performed by Older and Senior Plast members solely on a voluntary basis.

Plast in Ukraine unites about 10.000 members of different ages and by that is the biggest scouting organization in Ukraine. It conducts more than 100 educational outdoor camps with different specializations: sporting, marine, aeronautical, archaeological, arts, skiing, horse-riding, ecological, etc. At these camps, Plast members master their knowledge and practical skills obtained during the year at weekly studies. Among the biggest events carried out by Plast on all-Ukrainian level are: the intellectual-art competition “Or- lykiada”, the creative festival “Den Plastuna”, the sporting event “Sparta- kiada”, the tourist contests “Stezhkamy herojiv” and “Osinniy reyd”.
