What is the process for online Y1?

The online Youth Membership Application (Y1) form is simple to use:

  • Step 1: Hand out customisable flyers to prospective members that will direct them to the Youth Member Application Form (Y1) on the Scouts NSW website and provide them the Scout correct Group email address to send their completed form.
  • Step 2: The prospective member’s parent/ primary carer fills in the Y1 online and receives a PDF version via email.
  • Step 3: The prospective member’s parent/ primary carer forwards the PDF to the Scout Group’s email address listed on the flyer.
  • Step 4: The Group Leader endorses/approves the Adult Helper and sends the endorsed PDF form to the Region Office via email.

As a Group Leader, it is your responsibility to endorse the Y1 form, and forward a copy to your Region Office as soon as possible after you have received it from the new applicant.
