Parents, Volunteer Leaders and Scouting Supporters:


I have been active in the Scouting Program as a youth, adult, volunteer, and parent for over 20+ years. In my roles I have seen a lot of good stuff happening and some not so great. Many of you know that the National Office is going through a Bankruptcy, however some of you might not know that it will affect all of Scouting across the nation. Also, many individuals have already been affected positively, and others have been affected negatively.

The news media doesn’t always tell the good side of the story or even what our children are learning, experiencing, and exploring in the Scouting programs. In fact, I would guess that the attorneys and the Judges that are hearing these cases have no idea of the positive impact Scouting has to offer or what kind of experiences individuals, such as you and I, have had in our lifetime with Scouting. Learn More
