Opportunity Description:

Scouts Canada is looking for volunteers to join Group Committees for several groups in the St. John’s-Metro region!

These positions are generally administrative in nature and do not necessarily require a specific weekly commitment.  They are ideal for people who have relatively flexible schedules and great verbal and electronic communication skills.  There’s no requirement to regularly attend weekly Section meetings (Beavers, Cubs, etc.), however it is encouraged from time-to-time depending on your position.  Group Committee meetings usually occur every 4-6 weeks, or as needed.  While experience with Scouts or Guides is an asset, it is not required for these positions.

Positions include:

  • Group Commissioner
  • Treasurer
  • Registrar
  • Secretary
  • Popcorn/Fundraising Coordinator
  • other…

Many of our groups in the St. John’s-Metro area could benefit from having a full Group Committee, willing to dedicate approximately 10 hours/month to the program, generally from September-June.  Some groups offer occasional summer activities.

To ensure the success of our programs, we need the support of dedicated volunteers, just like you!  You don’t even need to have kids in the program, just an interest in youth development and helping our groups succeed

If you’re interested in starting your adventure with Scouts Canada, contact William Short at or call 709-687-2888.
