This program mapping shows how actions, advancement and activities in the Scouts Canada program can be applied to the LDS Church's Children and Youth programme and vice versa. These are recommendations only and should not be considered either authoritative or complete. The new church program is open ended and family driven. This means that a family or youth could choose to complete parts of the program using scouting. The advantage here is that scouting provides activities which are age appropriate and well defined with can help youth and families in developing a program best suited for their own needs and the age of the youth.
The Scouts Canada programme with it focus on individual goal setting is perhaps one of the simpler mappings to implement
