Young People First code of practice (Yellow card)
To give positive guidance, the ‘Young People First’ code of practice (also known as the yellow card) sets out a code of behaviour for all adults in Scouting.
Every adult should have a copy of the ‘Young People First’ code of practice. It is designed so you can keep it with you at all times during Scouting activities.
The yellow card is available from the scout website
