Youth are the leaders of today. When it comes to paving the way to a brighter future, their contributions are key. That’s why Scouts Canada is grateful to partner with global youth activist, Autumn Peltier, and Future Ancestors, our partners. With their guidance at our Youth Summit this November, we can further empower Scouting youth to take active roles in planning what the future of Scouting can look like—a Scouts Canada that is truly diverse, equitable and inclusive.
In early October of this year, Scouts Canada began apologizing to First Nations, Métis and Inuit people for our role in the residential and day school systems and the ongoing harm it caused. We are committed to working with Indigenous communities across the country, at their pace, to co-create a way forward.
We have the opportunity to set a new path toward a better future. As today's leaders, we want youth to have a voice in designing what our way forward should look like.
Scouts Canada is inviting a group of up to 50 passionate, committed young people to bring their ideas to the table and help us create enhanced programming and community relationships for Scouting. The Youth Summit will involve discussions around what Scouts Canada can be for future generations and what it means to truly be inclusive, across multiple dimensions of diversity.
The Youth Summit will take place on November 17 for Scouting members and non-member youth. Will you join us?
