Upcoming Scouters Club: March 25, 2018

A sharing of York Headwaters Area’ story with Scouting Life...

An interview between Scouting Life and Area Key 3

“The Scouters' Club is a collaboration... We don't want the Scouters to think that the Area leadership is their boss — we're their peers, and we hope that they feel comfortable coming to us for help.”     ~~ Kit Cheng, Area Commissioner (AC)

“The meetings give youth the opportunity for self-development, sharing ideas and making friends... The Canadian Path starts with the youth, so if youth go to Scouters’ Club, they bring their ideas back to their Group and potentially spark a new adventure, or influence the direction of their Group's program.”     ~~ Mandy Chung, Area Youth Commissioner (AYC)

"Scouters’ Club is a cornerstone for the engagement, teamwork and success that the Area has had so far."     ~~ Alyssa McGinnis, Area Support Manager (ASM)
