Along with the spiritual role, Our Syriac Church looks for supporting Syriac young people in their physical and mental development that they may play constructive roles in the church and society.
In order to meet these aims, Scouts sections were established in the different Syriac Archdioceses all over the world.
Later on, the late lamented Patriarch Mor Ignatius Zakka I Iwas established in 2003 the Universal Syriac Scouts Organization to connect Syriac scouts worldwide and converges them towards the same vision; thus help building youths’ personalities without discarding their spiritual life.
As church service, scouts take big part in organizing feasts, events, and important occasions.
Nowadays, H.H. Patriarch Mor Ignatius Aphrem II seeks to strengthen this important church organization in order for it to continue producing successful generations that serve the Holy Church and humanity as a whole.
