The Friends Emblem is an adult recognition program designed to recognize outstanding contributions to the spiritual and social development of Young Friends through Scouting/Guiding and active involvement in the life of the Religious Society of Friends.
The Friends Emblem may be presented to any adult working with Scouts/Guides who is a recorded member or attender of the Religious Society of Friends.
While this recognition was originally developed for adults working with Scouts in the United States, it is now available for presentation to adults working with Scouts/Guides worldwide.
Individuals and local Monthly Meetings and Friends Churches are encouraged to nominate worthy Friends for this recognition.
NOTE: Self nominations are not accepted nor are nominations from spouses or family members accepted.
