How to Activate a Volunteer - For Group Commissioners

  1. Who activates who?
  2. How to 'Activate' a Volunteer



All Volunteers are registered in 'pending' status by default. This is to allow Commissioners the opportunity to review a volunteer's screening and ensure that they are compliant with Scouts Canada's Volunteer Screening Procedure before they are able to participate and wear the Scouter uniform.

This article will instruct Commissioners on how to activate these Volunteers.


Who activates who?:

After Volunteers have completed their mandatory training and screening requirements, they must be manually activated.

The Group Commissioner completes the activation for their Section and Group Committee Scouters.

The Group's Relationship Manager completes the activation for their Group Commissioners.


How to activate a Volunteer

Changes to Volunteer statuses can be done through the "Screening" tab in the Volunteer's profile. This will produce a list of all Pending roles that they are currently registered for and identifying the completion of the individual screening elements. After confirming that all of the mandatory screening and training elements are in place, the Volunteer can be made 'Active' by clicking the 'Activate' button next to the respective role in the screening tab.
