Organized in 1953 as the International Fellowship of Former Scouts and Guides (IFOFSAG, renamed to ISGF in 1996), this international organization is designed to provide a means for adults to maintain interest and/or involvement in Scouting. It is recognized by both WOSM and WAGGGS, and many ISGF members are also active Scouters in associations that are part of those organizations. Headquarters is in Brussels, Belgium.
In addition to ISGF, there are three adult-oriented associations affiliated with the Order of World Scouts: Scuola Nazionale Formazione Scout in Italy, and The Order of the Redeemer and The Scout History Association, both in the UK.
