The “Torch-Lights”, (“Flambeaux et Lumières”,) is an interdenominational movement which aims to lead children aged 3-18 to Jesus Christ. The children progress through various stages to become scouts or guides.

Their slogan is “shine, shine bright,” and their motto is “honesty, courage, courtesy, purity, faithfulness, obedience and devotion”.

The movement is based on Philippians 2: 15. The boys’ movement is the “Torches” (“Flambeaux”) and they progress through various stages to become scouts, while the girls’ movement is the “Lights” (“Lumières”) and they progress through various stages to become guides.
