In Their Own Words

Meet some of our volunteers who are helping shape Canada’s next generation of well-rounded youth.  

In this world, kids hear NO a lot. At Scouts, we say YES to kids! When kids hear YES, they feel empowered and invigorated. They seize the chance to explore their creativity, develop new talents and unearth their passions. Let’s unite and embrace the spirit of saying YES to kids!
