An International Development Project is a partnership between Scouts Canada and another National Scout Organization (NSO). The objective is to work together towards community development. This project can take the form of a construction project (like a hospital or a school), or a training project (like delivering FOCUS or Woodbadge Training). The result should always be working towards ending poverty and inequality in the world.
Where will Scouting will take you? To another side of the world, working side by side with other members of the Scouting community, fighting poverty and inequality or working towards environmental initiatives to make a lasting change in the world.
From as early as Beaver Scouts, we learn to help take care of the world, to do our best, be prepared, challenge ourselves and serve others. International development projects through ScoutsAbroad put everything you’ve learned to the test. You get the opportunity to grow, build your resume, find your passion in life, and change the world.
