Program Standards - Quality Award
Did you know - Scouts Canada's Program Standards is also the Quality Award submission form?
- The PSQA is a simple checklist - if you are already running a quality program, this will "fill itself"
- The PSQA can be used during your planning meetings to ensure that you are delivering a quality program.
- Quality programs are directly related to growth and retention
The goal for the 2012-2013 Scouting year in Voyageur Council is that 30% of the junior sections will earn the Quality Award (Colony / Pack / Troop). Here are the Program Standards for Beavers, Cubs, Scouts, Venturers, and Rovers.
For Group Commissioners, find out more here.
Program Standards for Venturers and Rovers
The Venturer and Rover program belongs to the youth. For this reason, we encourage the youth of these sections to develop a set of Program Standards that work for their group. Find out more here.
National Standards - Revitalization!
Program Standards for Scouts Canada are moving forward - there is a Program Revitalization project that you can find out about here. Team members have published a Program Review that talks about why we do what we do. Learn about the acronym SPICES: Social, Physical, Intellectual, Character, Emotional, Spiritual.
