Scouting builds resiliency and if we can help our kids find resiliency, we know they’ll be prepared for future success in the world. So we called in an expert.
Did you miss the "Raising Resilient Children Webinar" with Dr. Robyne Hanley-Dafoe? Don't worry — we recorded the webinar and live Q&A so that you can catch Robyne's interactive session! Watch the webinar to gain an understanding of the principles of building resiliency and discover some steps you can take to better support youth amidst these changing times — and also in daily life.

Good Morning Families and Scouters!
While NLC will be starting the 2021 Scouting year off at Stage 1 (virtual) following the province's update on Jan 7th, that doesn’t mean we can’t have awesome adventures.
By leaning on and leaning from our Scouting community, we will come out of the pandemic stronger and wiser. Here's to a new year filled with new adventures and new friendships! Where will Scouts take you in 2021?
Our team has been working hard to produce more solutions for our members to be able to deliver exciting virtual programming. Take advantage of the resources on scouts.caand the additional program resources that have been developed by the Program Support Team and your local Councils. These include the Personal Achievement Badge portal and our Scouts for Sustainability program.
Remember, Virtual Scouting is more than just Zoom meetings; it is an opportunity to provide a unique way to explore all 6 program areas--including the Environment & Outdoors. Instead of experiencing these activities at an in-person meeting, our youth and Scouters will be doing them within their family units and virtually sharing those experiences with their Scouting friends. Our youth can still earn badges for the activities they complete with their families and develop those important skills. These are all great options to keep our youth and Scouters engaged and Scouting--even when we are apart.
Our request to Scouters, families and youth is to please keep Scouting open and accessible. Our program is more than a weekly in-person meeting; it is about helping youth develop social, physical, intellectual, characterful, emotional, and spiritual skills to help them be successful today and in their future endeavours. If the pandemic has taught us anything it is that Scouting can be done anywhere and in any format. Let's keep the Scouting spirit alive and we encourage everyone to stay connected through social media.
This is an opportunity for us to share best practices and demonstrate the resiliency and importance of Scouting.

If you have any questions or concerns, please contact your, Group Commissioner.

Have a great day and stay safe!
