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)
Scouters from local groups in York Headwater Area meet in Scouters’ Clubs to:
Scouters’ Clubs are hosted by the Area Leadership Team and led by the Area Key 3 (AC, AYC, ASM). They are open to representatives from all local Groups including youth, Scouters and Group Commissioners.
Our Scouters’ Clubs meet on every last Sunday of the month (except June, July & December).
It is strongly encouraged that representatives from each Group attend each meeting. Share the load and rotate the Scouter(s) who attend. There is benefit for more than one Scouter from each Group to attend as it increases the participation when planning Area level events (Camps, Fun Days, youth training events, etc.).
New Scouter Integration -- It is important that all new Scouters should be made
aware of the Scouters’ Club and encouraged to attend
with a representative of the Group or their Mentor
