Scouts Canada, the country’s leading youth organization, offers challenging programs for boys, girls and youth age 5-26 in thousands of individual groups in most cities and towns across Canada.
Welcome to a world of scouting and a world of difference. Welcome to Scouting beyond borders.
Did you know that there are 30 million youth around the world involved in the Scouting movement? Millions of these global Scouts are in the Third World. There are Scouts in Africa, Latin America and Asia. They live in cities, in the countryside – there are even groups of homeless kids who meet every week.
That’s why we have the SCOUTSabroad program. You can go abroad on a Jamboree, make a pen pal friend in another part of the world, or maybe even participate in a project that helps a Scout in the Third World.
SCOUTSabroad is proud to support the Canadian Brotherhood Fund. Scouts in wealthier countries like Canada help Scouts in developing countries help themselves on the road to self-sufficiency. Grants from the Brotherhood Fund provide the “seed money” for many community development projects.
Groups of Scouts in developing countries develop and carry out projects to improve their own lives and the future of their communities. These are the kinds of projects funded by the Canadian Scout Brotherhood Fund.
SCOUTSabroad has supported schools, the building of wells, skills training for street kids, and much more. Scouts, Cub Scouts, Beaver Scouts, Venture Scouts and Rover Scouts like you have raised money for these projects – and some have even gone overseas to help.
