International Volunteer Opportunities

Lead the World: International Volunteer Opportunities
In world Scouting, the opportunities to lead and volunteer abroad are nearly limitless. By representing Scouts Canada abroad, you venture into the world of diplomacy. Whether it’s by joining short term staff at Kandersteg International Scout Centre, or by representing Scouts Canada at the World Scout Conference (or any and every possibility in between), you will be challenged to put everything you’ve ever learned about international Scouting into working with others for a common goal. By volunteering internationally through Scouts Canada, you will take your first steps to leading the world!
