Youth Leadership Training

YLT (previously FLEX & FAST)

These courses are called FLEX (Fun Leadership EXperience) for Cub Scouts and FAST (Fun Active Scout Training) for Scouts. These courses designed by the National Youth Network will help youth learn skills to become the greatest leaders they can be.

YLT (previously FOCUS)

FOCUS (Future Of Canada United in Scouting) is a for-youth-by-youth leadership program aimed towards Venturer Scouts and Rover Scouts. 

Group Youth Commissioner - Wood Badge 1

This course covers basic knowledge for a Group Youth Commissioner, preparing them for success in their role. This course is adapted to help with knowledge necessary for Group Youth Commissioners, such as engaging youth, elements of the Canadian Path, and much more!

Are you interested in helping with or running a FAST, FLEX or FOCUS course? Talk to the Youth Council for more information.

Specialized Courses

Want to run a training course?

With the exception of First Aid training, no training courses may be put on without the approval and/or consultation of the Training Team. Please contact Greater Toronto Council at

Approval of the DCYC - Program Quality must be sought for any training course involving youth from more than two Scouting groups or that is held by an Area(s). This is to ensure that all training delivered to youth is in line with Scouts Canada’s values and is beneficial for the further development of our youth members. 



Scouts Canada, the country’s leading youth organization, offers challenging programs for boys, girls and youth age 5-26 in thousands of individual groups in most cities and towns across Canada.
