Scouts Canada’s Post-Secondary Coaching Program for Venturer Scouts and Rover Scouts
Helping you find your path in life – in post-secondary education and your career – is the Pathways to Your Future program’s goal.
As you try to figure out answers to the questions “Who am I?”, “Where am I going?” and “What’s possible?”, we provide you with the support you need to help you find your path.
If you face challenges in identifying and achieving your post-secondary and career goals due to economic, social, cultural, personal or other barriers, this program is for you.
Ann Marie Sweeney (Founder, the Sweeney Foundation), wanted to fund a program for older youth that focuses on their needs at two key crossroads in their lives: finding their post-secondary educational path and navigating their route from school to work.
With Mrs. Sweeney’s generous gift, Scouts Canada developed the Pathways to Your Future Program. This special initiative will offer 100 participants career counselling, skills development and mentorship as they complete their individual, youth-proposed and youth-led Scouting project.
By participating in the Pathways to Your Future program, you will receive professional training and hands-on experiences to help you choose the education and career path that is best for you. You will develop practical, in-demand skills like financial literacy, and project and relationship management. You will also build soft skills like creativity, consultative sales, collaboration, adaptability and time management—all things you will need to succeed in school, at work and in life.
As part of the process, you’ll identify, plan and execute a project or participate in an experience that helps build up your local Scout Group or Council.
Apply today and let us help you find your path!
To be part of the first cohort of participants, apply by May 1 (midnight PST).
The next deadline for applications will be posted to this site later this month. If you have any questions about the Pathways to Your Future program, email firstname.lastname@example.org.
