What does Scouting do for youth?
Scouting volunteers have provided generations of Canadian youth with a first opportunity to sleep in a tent, to experience leadership and to build self-reliance and self-confidence. Volunteer dedication, resourcefulness and enthusiasm are vital to Scouting.
Why is Scouting a great Volunteer experience?
Many people are looking for ways to develop skills that help them achieve personal and professional goals. Scouting has a long tradition of providing such opportunities.
A fully trained leader completes thorough online and experiential learning in understanding youth, program planning, leadership and risk management
Scouting offers many opportunities to develop marketing, communication, financial management and fundraising skills
Scouts Canada also offers excellent volunteer development courses
How do I volunteer with Scouts Canada?
Becoming a volunteer with Scouts Canada is a multi-step process and we are here to help you every step of the way. The process includes a personal interview, the provision of three personal references, and a Police Record Check. With one-on-one help from an experienced coach, you'll participate in a three-month orientation and probation period where you'll learn all the basics to help you provide great programs for youth.
Once you become a leader, you're provided with further training and tools and support to help you on your way. You'll attend courses and workshops, receive Scouting Life magazine and can access helpful online support resources.
If you can commit 12 - 14 hours per month, you can make a difference in the lives of many kids, and help shape a better world for tomorrow.
