Bromley Woodcraft invited Rebecca to meet the pioneer group in 2011, after the session the pioneers didn’t feel they could rise to the challenge of an action project.
Leaders at the time tried to motivate the pioneers but after some discussion felt the ideas put forward were being heavily influenced by leaders and did not meet the sprit of the scheme.
In 2013 Joe met the Venturers to discuss geocaching and action projects (some of the venturers had been in the pioneer group who meet with Rebecca previously)
A case study of a great example of an Action Project, a youth led community project. The case study includes useful links and recommendations for your group if wishing to do a similar project.
Send my sister to school Woodcraft Folk Action Project
Send my sister to school is a campaign focusing on one of the Millennium Development goals set in 2000 to ensure a quality primary education for all children. As more than half the current 67 million children out of school are girls, this project is raising awareness in particular for the female issues.
We received £500 from the Woodcraft Folk Action Fund to support us in our work.
Last month saw the rewarding of the first twinned Action Project, giving them £1000 pounds to raise the profile of outdoor education and Woodcraft.

Wokingham Elfins and Pioneers are running a project to improve their local meadow for everyone that uses it. They’ve planned what they want to do with advice from a local conservation group ‘Friends of the Emmbrook’ in order to make the area look nicer, encourage wildlife and to make the area more interesting for young people.
