No One Left Behind Funding

At Scouts Canada…No one is left behind.

For over 100 years, Scouts Canada has been dedicated to preparing youth for success in the world, relying on outdoor-focused, educational programs. We believe that the path to wholesome development and healthy community engagement starts with Scouts, and that every young person in Canada deserves the opportunity to participate in our high quality programming, despite the financial challenges they may face.

With our No One Left Behind program, Scouts Canada ensures that all youth are given access to the Scouting life and a chance to build a positive future for themselves and the world.

The No One Left Behind Program

 
In 2007, Scouts Canada announced the No One Left Behind program in an effort to ensure that every youth is provided with the opportunity to experience new adventures with a local Scouts Canada program. Through No One Left Behind, membership fees and related costs are subsidized for youth from families facing economic barriers. This program provides an affordable opportunity for young people from low-income families to develop life skills, a healthy attitude towards the outdoors, build positive self-esteem and engage in community service — all elements which are proven to have a significant impact in adulthood.

No One Left Behind has grown considerably since its birth. Over the past seven years, we have been able to provide nearly 16,000 youth with the chance to participate in Scouts Canada programming by alleviating financial obstacles preventing participation. Since the program was expanded in 2011, No One Left Behind has included the funding of after school programs, uniforms, outdoor equipment and camps. Through No One Left Behind, we are offering a true opportunity for all youth to belong to a group and engage in the full range of Scouting activities.

Every young person deserves to experience the world of adventure, friendship and self-development that Scouting offers. With your support for No One Left Behind, we can prepare even more youth – both male and female – across the country for future success.

How to apply

To apply for a No One Left Behind membership fees subsidy:

  • You can begin a NOLB subsidy request by calling the NOLB support number (1-844-300-6652) or by emailing NOLB@scouts.ca with parent name, city, province, phone number with area code, family size, family income and the number of children expected in Scouting. Calls and emails will be directed to the closest Regional Service Centre;
  • The Service Centre will review the information received and determine if your family is eligible for a NOLB subsidy;
  • Service Centre personnel will contact you, advise on whether a subsidy has been awarded, and either walk you through the registration process or register the child directly.  At that time, you will be asked to make the remaining payment by credit card or by submitting a cheque or cash to the Regional Service Centre.
