Getting Involved

Do you work with children in the SCA?  You may want to consider becoming a Chancellor Minor or Youth Officer at Large.

What Is A Chancellor Minor?

A Chancellor Minor is the local go-to person for youth activities and their coordination for your local group.  This person may facilitate resources, organize classes, or generally be a point of contact for youths and parents.  Being a Chancellor Minor is a more formalized role in the form of being an actual officer.

What Is A Youth Officer At Large?

Youth Officers At Large perform all the same functions of a Chancellor Minor but do not hold office.  These people are basically “a legal adult” in the room and can help keep youth activities compliant.  If you are a parent working with kids or at Family Point regularly, you may want to consider becoming a Youth Officer At Large.  You never know when someone with a background check is needed!

Requirements for being a Chancellor Minor

  • Be at least 21 years of age 
  • Be a paid member of the SCA, and maintain SCA membership for the duration of your time in this position. 
  • Pass a background check with the SCA.
