How Can I Help?

Scouting operates through volunteer leadership. Volunteer leaders are an example of Scouting’s principle of service to others. Naturally, parents are the primary source of leaders in the Scouting program. You volunteer not only to serve Scouting, but also to help your son and his friends, and to have the chance to be a positive influence on the youth in your community.

What Do I Receive In Return?

Being a leader is fun, challenging, and rewarding. Leaders find that their experiences help them to become better parents. The following are some of the many dividends that will enrich your life as you dedicate your time, talent, and enthusiasm to Scouting:

  • Fun and fellowship with other families, sharing your pride in the boys’ accomplishments.
  • The privilege of helping to enrich and strengthen families.
  • A chance to help boys learn good citizenship and to help shape them into men who have strength of character and are sensitive to the needs of others.
  • The opportunity to help make a difference in the lives of boys as they grow strong in mind and body.
  • A code to live by that will set a worthwhile example for both boys and adults.
  • The satisfaction of being a member of a worldwide movement, and pride in being publicly identified as a part of this organization. Wearing the Scouting uniform is a visible means of showing you believe in and stand up for the ideals and objectives of the Boy Scouts of America.
