Why Volunteer in Scouting?

Scouting volunteers have helped thousands of youth discover their potential in society by exposing them to all kinds of leadership and team building experiences. Scouting provides an outdoor adventure for every youth member that they will remember for the rest of their lives.

How do I volunteer with Scouts Canada?

Becoming a volunteer with Scouts Canada is a multi-step process. We start with a personal interview, the provision of three personal references, and a Police Record Check. There are a few training seminars to be taken on-line or in-person, then you'll participate in an 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, 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.
