NS Golds - Nova Scotia Gold Award Association
NS Golds is a new group created by Gold Award Achievers and participants from all over the province. Our goal is to provide an outlet for past achievers, regardless of when or where they completed their award, to give back to the program through assisting current participants. As award achievers, we have skills that youth need – especially when it comes to expeditions. We are not leaders – we are a source of support, advice, guidance and assessment. We want to be able to offer preliminary training throughout the province, in participants communities, and then assess the skills they’ve learned by accompanying them on expeditions. Not only will this help youth develop better skills – we get to go camping more! Join with this group and you’ll have a ready-made group of friends who also like to get out in the great outdoors. If you are a Gold Achiever, we’re your type of people!
