Ken is joined by Josee Francis to discuss...well, people, really. The discussion begins with a bit of a debrief about FTE 2019, which was Harry Potter-themed, but quickly verges into the topic of the Telus World of Science’s new Nature Exchange program. This, in turn, pivots into a discussion about how to build youth engagement within Scouting, and how to encourage youth to take Scouting beyond their weekly Colony/Pack/Troop gatherings.
At some point, the discussion does turn toward the importance of fostering and growing the skills of the adult volunteers so critical to the delivery of Scouting programs in Canada. Josee, for her part, also notes that FTE serves, for many Scouters, as a kind of reset or refresh, in addition to being an opportunity to share skills and experiences.
Also discussed, as a tangent off of the Vikings theme, is the subject of human ingenuity and innovation.
As always, a big thank you to the folks at Scouting Radio for rebroadcasting Scouting Stuff episodes to their worldwide Scouting audience. If you're listening to us on Scouting Radio right now, let us know; reach out and get in touch. We'd love to hear from you.
