Context : The concept of passion had been developped by Vallerand (2003). this concept has two
dimensions : harmonious and obsessive passion : the harmonious one tend to be good for health
and well-being and the obsessive one tend to have negative impact on health and well-being and
increase the risk of burnout (Houlfort & Vallerand, 2006). Popular education and scoutism try to
train active citizen by the maxim “education with all, for all, by all”.
Aim : Popular education and scoutism are fields of commitment, a possible ground to develop
passion. Our hypothesis is that scoutism with its particular method, based on responsibility and
commitment, allow more development of harmonious passion, and thus a better perceive health
and well-being for its volunteers.
Method : Several scale were assessed : HADS, brief-cope, SPANE, EFIB, self- compassion scale,
toxic handler scale and socio-demographic data. We worked with volunteers from the six
organizations of French Scout Organization and six popular education organization.
Results : Data collection will be over in March 2019
