Scouts Canada ProgramsScouting 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 is the start of something great.
