What is a Scouter Volunteer?
A Scouts Canada volunteer is called a Scouter. Scouters are responsible to deliver safe and incredible experiences for youth in our Loyalist Area communities. Many times, parents begin as a helper with their child in their section. Scouting is built on volunteers who perform a variety of roles.
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 Scouter completes thorough online and experiential learning in understanding youth, program planning, leadership and safety training;
Scouting offers many opportunities to develop marketing, communication, financial management and fundraising skills;
We need your help to allow more young people to experience the challenge and adventure of Scouting. At the same time, we will help you challenge yourself.
Many of our Outdoor Adventures use service providers for paddle sports, vertical skills, white water rafting or tree trekking. Voyageur Council maintains an approved list of providers that can be used by our sections that meet Scouts Canada safety policies and guidelines.
