Supporting delivery of programs for Victorian youth
State Quartermaster Team
Scouts Victoria has a range of specialist, non-youth-specific sections. These sections are staffed with volunteers from within and outside scouting. Some of them will be familiar, others you may never have come in contact with. These autonomous sections come under the umbrella of “State Quartermaster Team”
Purpose of the State Quartermaster :
To support youth-section leaders and their Scouting program
The method we use:
Equipment, Merchandise and Personnel
