About Us

Established in 1951, the GeorgeTown (South) Local Association of Scouts is part of Penang State Scout Council and Scouts Association of Malaysia. The district serves scouts within the southern part of the city of George Town in the north-east district of Penang island, which is south of the line running along the Dr Lim Chwee Leong Road Ghaut (formerly Prangin Street Ghaut), Macalister Road, Utama Road (formerly Western Road) to Botanic Gardens, including the vicinities of Jelutong, Air Itam, and part of Gelugor from Brown Garden to Gambir Garden.

History of Scout Movement in Penang and Malaysia
In Malaysia, scout movement started two years after it was founded in London. However, it is believed that a trial group had been established in George Town at YMCA Penang in 1908, the same year that scouting was formed in England.

Before the independence on August 31, 1957, the scout movement in Malaysia was formally registered with the London headquarters of the Boy Scouts Association (now The Scout Association). On September 1, 1957, the national organization was admitted as a full member of the World Organization of the Scout Movement, and now known as Scouts Association of Malaysia (Persekutuan Pengakap Malaysia). The scout movement in Malaysia is governed under Scouts Association of Malaysia (Incorporation) Act 1968.
