11 1-888-SCOUTS-NOW | Scouts Canada Volunteer Requirements To be considered an active volunteer in the myscouts system: Volunteer registration for current year (through paper registration or self-registration); Mandatory training (CYS, Accessibility, WB I – module 1); Returning volunteers must have completed their section- specific WB I training; Complete set of screening requirements (PRC/VSS, Interview and Reference Checks); Signed code of conduct (paper copy entered by Registrar or electronic through; Approval from Group/Area Commissioner and/or Council representative.

12 1-888-SCOUTS-NOW | Myscouts process for volunteers Once all elements are in place – your Group/Area Commissioner, or Council representative can confirm your status is active from their screening tab; (activation may take up to 24 hours to be processed in the system) Outstanding requirements are shown next to role on the Roles listing from the Volunteer Dashboard; Can also view full requirements through the Screening and Training Compliance report available under the “Reporting” area on; If a volunteer is activated without ALL requirements completed, the information (volunteer, approver, date and missing elements) will be added to an exception listing which is distributed and followed up by your Council. –It’s ok to Activate New Volunteers without “MS1.”

13 1-888-SCOUTS-NOW | Myscouts Tips – volunteer activation Terminology for statuses in myscouts: –Not renewed: no current registration for Member in myscouts; –Pending: the Member is missing screening or training requirements, or is waiting for approval. Members without an “Active” status do not have access to information about other Members; Group Registrars must be active before registering their Group Members; It is currently not possible to view Member profiles for those who are not renewed, or are inactive. These Members can be renewed by choosing the “Register a Volunteer” option; Training is available to all Members with a profile on myscouts, regardless of their status in the system.

14 1-888-SCOUTS-NOW | You should learn something new everyday! Wildcard search capability: ‘%’ - multiple; ‘_’ - single; Email in profile versus myscouts web account; Permissions are cumulative based on your roles; Profiles versus roles; Youth aged 14-18 require set up for access to myscouts and a unique email address; To view information on not-renewed members, start their registration process, and then cancel; In Volunteer Screening Tab, use right click and back to move back to previous screen; Timing on nightly system updates;

15 1-888-SCOUTS-NOW | Questions – sent and not yet answered: Do we still need a paper registration form if they registered online? The signed Code of Conduct sheets aren’t mailed to the Council office anymore? How do you remove names of youth from myscouts who got a refund and left the program? What about volunteers? What should happen if a volunteer’s interview information is shown as incomplete? What should you do if one of your volunteers has the incorrect role listed? I am the GC for 1 st Expedition and I don’t have the admin options button to add a role for my daughter who is an SIT – Why?
