Scouting makes a difference in the lives of children, youth and young adults. Providing youth-led opportunities, members determine what areas they would like to grow in as they achieve new “firsts” and develop into global citizens. With a versatile array of program areas to focus on, Scouting welcomes youth with diverse interests and goals.

Through Scouting, youth are more likely to demonstrate greater self-confidence and optimism about what the future holds and how they will impact it. They express a strong sense of civic responsibility and environmental awareness, extending their “pay it forward” attitude to the community. They become more healthy, energetic, outgoing, conscientious and compassionate – and they have a lot of fun! In Scouting there can be found a stimulating environment and inclusive community – cultivating the youth of today to become the contributors of a better tomorrow.

Scouts Canada + STEM

Science, Technology, Engineering and Math

The Scouts Canada STEM program is designed to promote interest in Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM) among Scouting youth and their families. STEM has long been an integral part of the Scouting experience, from building shelters and learning how to use navigation devices to connecting with and understanding the natural ecosystems around us. With a new emphasis on STEM, we hope to provide our youth and Volunteers with valuable tools and resources to make the most of their Scouting experience.
