As a volunteer I work with the youth as a mentor and advisor to help them experience adventures and a chance to participate in leadership and teamwork situations. As a Scouter I teach them life skills and outdoor skills.

My Scouting career afforded me many great opportunities for learning and growth. For example, I learned the importance and personal satisfaction of volunteering my time, the importance of community involvement, listening and learning skills, planning and preparation, leadership training, and many practical skills – all reinforced by participating in the ample opportunities offered to put these skills into practice.

This is a Volunteer Organization not a paid work place, its a great place for children to learn outdoor skills and to relate to other kids. As a Cub Scout leader you also get to experience camping , canoeing, Kayaking, Hiking or develop skills and share experiences you might not be able to anywhere else.
Pros
Organizing group activities and teaching my son valuable life tools.
Cons
It is done on your own free time .

Scouts Canada provides opportunities for the youth of all ages to get out and explore the outdoors with camping trips and outdoor exploration. Scouts Canada helps out the community by raising funds through donations and door to door sales where all proceeds go towards planting trees and hosting events for the local communities. Being apart of scouts Canada helps youth build on their skills and help to better improve their selves as members of the community.

Every Friday, from 7-9pm, meetings will be held at a location. Being part of the older group, we teach lessons to younger children. Sometimes, we would plan our meetings beforehand. During meetings, the leaders would educate and teach lessons that are not typically taught in school to younger scouters. This is a great way to gain volunteer experience and learn about the outdoors.

SCOUTS Canada was a very fun company to work for that took pride in teaching children the fundamentals of survival skills and reconnecting with nature and the environment.

Membership is on the decline as a result the company will try anything to turn this around, new strategic direction every three years sometimes including replacing staff. Upper management are now numbers driven and it has cost the company its heart and soul.
Pros
Work from Home

New manager every 2 years, salary and benefits are mediocre

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.
Pros
great friends, great community
Cons
Complicated hours sometimes also no money

I worked as service staff at the summer camp for children aged 7-12 years. As a member of the service crew, I was in part responsible for cleaning around the camp, replacing empty/broken amenities, and other all-around odd jobs. The camp takes place over two weeks in July, and staff are at the site for a few days before and after.
