Training and Enrichment for Adult Members (TEAM) is our national training program and is available for all Guiders, regardless if you are a new or experienced, a unit leader, Commissioner or an experienced adviser. Training helps you develop new skills and energizes to help you have fun and be effective in your new position!!

Here is a brief description of TEAM:

  • Safe Guide– Guiding has one mandatory training that all new adult Members must complete within 6 months of their join date. Safe Guide is our organization's risk management tool. It provides a consistent process for planning and implementing safe Guiding activities.

TEAM has five streams. Each is specialized to meet the training needs of Members based on their position. All streams are open to all adult Members. A TEAM pin of the appropriate colour is awarded upon completion of the Foundation modules in each stream.
