adult "Scouters" (registered volunteers) do not have to re-register for the new Scouting year; their roles will be auto-renewed later in the summer.
Who needs to complete a 2018-19 volunteer application/registration?
- New adult volunteers
- The parents of new and returning volunteers 14 to 17 years of age (to give parental consent for their youth to participate as volunteers)
- Volunteers changing Scout Groups - whether in another part of the country, or in a neighbouring community
- Previously active volunteers who are returning to Scouting after a break (so are not registered for the current Scouting year)
- In September or later, people who were registered for 2017-18 but did not complete requirements to be active so did not auto-renew. (These folks should only re-apply/register after all required training has been completed.)
What about Rovers?
Rover Scouts are
participants 18 to 26 years of age. As with other participants, they have to be registered/renewed annually. (The difference: being adults, they self-register.)
This person already has a profile in myscouts. Can I register him/her?
No. All volunteers must be self-registered (except youth under 18 who must be registered by a parent) online to review and accept terms and conditions, and give consent to participate.
