Personality Assessments ~

Ever wonder why other members in your team tend to see things from a different (sometimes alien) viewpoint. Are some team mates spur of the moment types while others take their time and plan to the last detail. Come join us for an introductory session of identifying the different personalities and gain some effective tools for getting everyone working towards the same goals.

Engaging Parents & Fundraising ~

There are many benefits to engaging parents in your program. Engaged parents are able to see the value that their children are getting from the program and do their best to help make it successful. Children of parents who are engaged in their Scouting program are much more likely to return to Scouts year after year. Engaged parents are more likely to volunteer as Scouters because they see how much fun Volunteers like you are having! The bottom line is that an engaged group of parents will make your role as a Scouter much easier.

Recruiting Volunteers ~

One of the most important elements of Scouts Canada is the Volunteer base upon which the organization is built. Without Volunteers, Scouting would not exist. For this reason, recruitment of Volunteers is crucial to providing an excellent program, growing the organization, and the strength of the organization as a whole. Volunteers affect each and every aspect of Scouts Canada; recruiting Volunteers who will help improve the quality of our program and the experiences of the youth is key to the success of Canadian Scouting.

Supporting Volunteers ~

Shared leadership is an important part of volunteering in Scouting. Scouters need to learn what it means to be part of a team within Scouts Canada and develop communication skills to be effective in this role. Part of this responsibility is addressing behavioural issues in a timely, constructive and respectful manner before they jeopardize program quality.
