How to (Parent) Volunteer

CODE OF CONDUCT

To volunteer you will need to sign the Code of Conduct for Adults. This is done electronically through your MyScouts account. You need to contact your Section Scouter so they can arrange to have a Role added to your profile. The next time you sign in you will be asked to Accept the Code of Conduct.

Code of Conduct is renewed annually. You can view the Code of Conduct online at any time here.

To volunteer overnight, you must undergo both a Police Record Check and a Vulnerable Sector Screening. This must be done even if it has been completed elsewhere (e.g., at school, hockey coach)

The form can be downloaded from the Scouts Toronto Website http://gtc.scouts.ca/sites/default/files/files/Toronto%20PRC%20Applicaton%20-%202015.pdf

The form MUST be printed on Legal Size Paper 

Complete the top portion of the form and the portion at the bottom for mailing address, and bring to the next meeting, along with the $20 fee, to be witnessed by your Section Scouter or Group Commissioner. They will submit the form on your behalf.

The form will be returned to your address by mail. At that time, you will need to bring the original form back to your Section Scouter or Group Commissioner so that they can take it to our Council Office for validation.
