Rotary History Bite 3/100: Rehabilitation of Scouting


Rehabilitation of Scouting:

World War I decimated the leadership of the Boy Scouts movement and was seriously under threat of collapse. Under the guidance of Rotarian Sir John Monash in 1925, Rotary Melbourne created an appeal that raised 14,000 pounds; the equivalent of $1million in current terms. 

It was used to create the Scout Management Plan. Since that action, the Scouts have influenced the many generations of young people in their way of life as concerned citizens. 
A legacy that spans our centenary of Rotary service.
