For the last five years, Scouts from coast to coast have participated in Good Turn Week to encourage Canadians to do what we have been doing for more than 100 years, doing a good deed for our neighbours. Good turns form the beginnings of a healthy society. Lending a helping hand or a gesture of good will goes a long way and will help to preserve a sense of community, friendliness, and good will.
Good Turn Week happens once a year and provides an opportunity to highlight the good work Scouting does for our communities. It also inspires others to make time for their own simple acts of kindness. Every year Scouts Canada challenges members to participate in Good Turn week by doing simple acts of kindness, or by applying to the Good Turn Week Community Project Challenge.
The Good Turn Week Community Project Challenge was created to help Sections, Groups, or Councils get their good turn ideas off the ground. If your Section has a great idea for Good Turn Week, but need a little help, members can submit their good turn projects for financial support from Scouts Canada.
