"What is this scouting all about?" "How is it going to benefit your son and your family?". First off you need to know that scouting is more than just tying knots. The Scouting program provides an excellent way for your child to grow, develop practical life skills, promote physical fitness and most importantly build character. Your child has the opportunity to be a part of the nation’s largest youth serving organization with well over 3 million youth members and 1.1 million adult volunteers. The Boy Scouts of America has been developing the scouting program here for almost 100 years. Millions have participated in the program and had their lives changed for the better.
What happens to a Scout? For every 100 Scouts... Rarely will one be brought before the juvenile court system, 2 will become Eagle Scouts, 17 will become future Scout volunteers, 12 will have their first contact with a church, 1 will enter the clergy, 5 will earn their church award, 18 will develop a hobby that will last through their adult life, 8 will enter a vocation that was learned about through the merit badge system, 1 will use his Scouting skills to save his own life, and 1 will use his Scouting skills to save the life of another person.
What better way to ensure your child has a great experience in scouting than to volunteer? Volunteer Now!
