Healthy Youth Relationships Training Opportunity

To support the positive development of youth, Scouts Canada, in collaboration with the Red Cross, is pleased to offer a great training opportunity for Scouting youth over 18 years of age— at no cost to youth participants! The Healthy Youth Relationships Prevention Educator Training will be offered in Toronto to a limited number of Scouting youth.

Scouts Canada’s mission is to help develop well rounded youth, better prepared for success in the world. A significant component of success is having the knowledge and ability to negotiate social settings and develop and maintain healthy relationships. Successful applicants will be certified to deliver lessons to Scouting youth ages 12-17, educating teens on healthy peer and intimate relationships. The Healthy Youth Relationship program will provide our youth members with knowledge and skills to be safe, recognize vulnerable situations, develop personal safety plans, and define where to get help.

The Healthy Youth Relationships course offers youth the knowledge and skills to develop healthy relationships and prevent relationship violence. The material from the Healthy Youth Relationships Course will enable our youth to build healthy relationships which will actively contribute to their overall personal development, well-being, and ongoing success.


The training course is 21 hours (three days) in total. After completing the training, you will be a certified trainer to deliver the Healthy Youth Relationships Youth Facilitator Training to youth under the age of 18. You then work with Youth Facilitators to deliver the material to other youth in Scouting (ages 13+). 

Throughout the process you will have access to numerous resources, tools and support to be able to confidently and effectively deliver the material.
