Messengers of Peace

Scouts are already doing great things in their community. The Messengers of Peace program aims to highlight this work by supporting Scouts’ community service and encouraging them to share their actions with others.

If a Scout does a service action and shares it with other, they can earn a Messengers of Peace badge. The main goal is to inspire Scouts to continue their community service or to join efforts with other Scouts from around the globe. 

You can earn the Messengers of Peace badge in 4 steps:

  1. Inspire: Explore and research about local problems, people in action and good practices.
  2. Learn and decide: Identify your motivation and talents. Choose a field of action. Select useful knowledge, skills and ideas to apply.
  3. Do: Plan your actions, execute, monitor, evaluate and report.
  4. Share: Share what you did, your experiences, outcomes and learnt lessons.

Any Scout or Scouter who participates in a qualifying project is eligible to wear a Messengers of Peace ring patch around the World Crest on his or her uniform. A unit representative can purchase these ring patches at a local Scout shop, council service center, or html icon
