Parents tell us their children benefit hugely from the adventures, fun and friendships they experience. It can help develop your child’s social skills and independence, and give them access to some amazing and memorable opportunities.
The majority of our helpers and Scouters are parents of our youth members. They’ve seen firsthand how Scouting benefits young people and they want to give something back. It’s also a chance to spend more time with their children and learn new skills. No matter how you get involved, we’ll make sure you’re properly trained and supported.
Beyond having a terrific time, participating in your child`s Scouting adventure also offers the chance to build on your own personal skills, like teamwork, confidence and leadership. Many of our Volunteers apply the skills and experiences they have gained through Scouting.
Given our size and scope, Scouts Canada can offer a big range of opportunities to develop your skills, expand your network and enhance your resume.
Whether you help out on a regular basis or just at special events or camps, there is an important role for you to play. Speak to your child’s Scouter to discuss how you can get involved.
