Expansion of the Federation of North-American Explorers (FNE) Movement  

FNE is proudly a member of the Union Internationale des Guides et Scouts d’Europe (UIGSE) also known as the FSE (Federation Scouts of Europe). We are not associated with any other youth organization. Our larger movement has also been granted canonical status by the Holy See as an “association of the faithful of pontifical right.”

Expansion of our Catholic faith based FNE movement is undertaken carefully and on a small scale basis with quality before quantity being a key factor. We seek out the right leaders who will ensure the sustainable success of a new FNE group while ensuring that the quality of the FNE program is never compromised or under delivered.
