Scouting is for Everyone

The Scout program provides great opportunities for you as well as for your son or daughter. When you step forward to volunteer they see you in a different light and it increases their resolve to do their best. By volunteering you model the character traits Scouting instills and you will have fun doing it! The various committees and uniformed leaders are parents and volunteers just like you from your neighborhood.

You don’t need to be a rugged outdoorsman to be a Scout Master, or an accountant to be the Pack treasurer. There’s nothing too complicated – it’s just parents working together to help raise their kids. That is something that’s worth a little time.

To become a volunteer – Talk to your child’s leader. They’ll be able to describe volunteer roles and help you identify the best role for you.

Once you’ve talked with the unit leadership and decided to volunteer you’ll need a few things:

1.Fill out the application

2.Send it, along with $15 and your documents for a background check (CORI)

3.Take the on-line youth protection training

The BSA provides mandatory online youth protection training and dozens of other helpful training courses to fit your busy schedule. look here to find the appropriate training courses near you!
