Cub leader (Former Employee) – Sackville, NB – 14 May 2019
Scouts has done so much for me I volunteered during the summer to do what I could to give back to kids who were in a position I once was. Although I didnt get payed, being able to teach kids exciting things and give them the guidance I needed at that age is greatly rewarding

Youth Area Commissioner (Former Employee) – Mississauga, ON – 15 January 2019
Scouts Canada isn't so much a job as it is a group. Built around the values needed to bring kids up well, it's been integral to my and many others' development. Including activities like camping and hiking, but also helping out in the community and raising money for charities.
Yearly volunteer (Former Employee) – Gibsons, BC – 12 January 2019
I worked as service staff at the summer camp for children aged 7-12 years.

The camp takes place over two weeks in July, and staff are at the site for a few days before and after.

Scout (Former Employee) – Coquitlam, BC – 25 April 2018
Every Tuesday is set as a Scout meeting day in which many children and adults gather to follow the scout handbook and learn various skills for camping use. The management is mainly planned by the Scout leaders. However, the scouts propose the most ideas based on their preferences and hobbies. The debates and the planning of the camps tend to be tedious since many camping venues tend to be booked full really fast. There are many schedules that coincide and we are forced to cancel some of the plans that were made. Overall, the kids learn to self-improve based on self-regulation, planning, and be able to adapt to certain situations that put them in disadvantages. After the planning, the fun parts will allow everyone to be relieved from the stress and all's well that ends well!
