Adult role models in Scouting provide an ideal learning experience for all youth. Every adult volunteer has something valuable to offer. On a typical weekend campout, Scouts might work with an adult volunteer who teaches good sportsmanship and with a Scout mom to learn knot tying, go on a 1-mile hike with another adult leader, and end the day learning how to cook and clean from someone else.
The advantages of Scouting are not limited to youth. Adults also develop leadership and physical skills with every training experience.
Volunteers learn, too. Volunteers spend a significant amount of time to ensure the success of Scouting in their communities. The average Scout volunteer gives 20 hours of service each month, and 96 percent of volunteers say they would recommend volunteering for the BSA to other adults. In fact, volunteers believe their time invested with the Boy Scouts of America helps them be:
A better citizen
A better parent
A better manager
A better employee
More patient and tolerant of others
More open to new ideas and opinions
We need you to provide the direction, coaching, and training that empowers today’s youth with the skills they will need to lead tomorrow.
