No One Left Behind

Help us give kids something to look forward to

When you donate to No One Left Behind, membership fees and related costs are subsidized for youth facing economic barriers in every province and territory.

Scouting is the perfect place for kids to prepare for the real world, by exploring the world!  While Scouts helps kids grow personally, they also develop into exceptional team players and capable leaders.

In 2020/21, over $470,000 was raised though our NOLB program enabling us to support more than 2,500 youth to embark on their Scouting adventure.


The Impact of the No One Left Behind Program

William

William — NOLB recipient and his mother Jennifer (Scouter)

If you’re able, please donate to NOLB so we can prepare youth across the country for future success – and give kids something to look forward to.

Kids like Wiliam “who loves everything about Scouting!” At Scouts, William has found friends who support him and a community where he belongs regardless of his differences. Scouting has empowered him to take on new challenges and engage actively in his community. The NOLB program helped families, like Jennifer and her son William, to remain in Scouting or join the program even when facing financial barriers.

“If it wasn’t for the No One Left Behind program subsidies, I would not have been able to register my son for Scouts or camp this summer due to the financial repercussions Covid has had on my work.” - Jennifer, long-time Scouter.

“I have been in Scouts since 1983 and a volunteer for over 35 years now, and I can’t begin to tell you how much Scouting has changed my life. I am the person I am today because of the skills I learned in Scouts. I wish for all kids to be able to experience Scouting and discover the best in themselves. And with your support, they can.”

 

Every donation counts!

Please help us so that more youth like William can learn important life skills and have something to look forward to.
