As the weekly meetings wind down, please take a few moments as part of the Review Cycle of Plan-Do-Review to thank our volunteers through Scouts Canada’s Thanks system.
- It takes a special type of person to volunteer, and we can never thank them enough.
- It’s very easy to thank them. You can do it in less than a minute through either the www.scouts.ca/thanks website, or through myscouts.ca.
- These individual citations count towards helping them be recognized for Scouts Canada’s other Outstanding Service Awards.
Anyone can hit the Thanks button and recognize a Scouts Canada Volunteer – Youth, Parents, or other Scouters. If you are logged into myscouts.ca and can access their record (for example, they are in your section or a child organization you have access to), you can add the commendation directly again their account, speeding up the approval process.
The Thanks system is geared towards recognizing Scouts Canada members who are in a volunteer role. If you have a Beaver, Cub, Scout, Venturer or Rover who is doing great things as a Program Participant, talk to you Section Scouter or Group Commissioner on how you can best recognize their efforts.
Have any questions? Contact the CEC Recognition team through email@example.com
