The Greater St. Louis Area Council provides Scout Outreach through the Community Outreach District to students in communities with limited volunteers to lead packs and troops. Currently, urban and rural youth in Kindergarten through 8th grade are provided in-school and after-school Cub Scouts and Scouts BSA programs.

 

To ensure Scouts in the Outreach Program receive the same quality program as any other Scout, we developed a comprehensive program plan that includes structured activities for each meeting, a calendar of events, and guidance for delivering the curriculum. Youth membership fees are waived, and kids are provided with official Cub Scout and Scouts BSA uniforms. Kids also get to participate in STEM activities, character education lessons, and leadership training as well as opportunities to earn badges, participate in advancement ceremonies, outdoor education, and camping events.

Community Outreach District News

As we approach the end of the year, one of the biggest accomplishments of 2020 for the Community Outreach District was to start up the new Community Outreach Committee. The new Committee was developed to focus on supporting the development and execution of the Council’s Community Outreach District to promote Advancement, Summer Camp, Day Camp, and Special Events.

The Community Outreach Committee is excited to share that we have recruited Harris-Stowe State University’s new President Dr. Corey Bradshaw who will serve as Vice President of the Outreach Committee. Through the support and partnership with Harris-Stowe State University, the newly created Outreach Committee will improve community and adult advocates and college student to scout mentorship programs, enhance STEM programs and cultivate a pipeline to college and career readiness for Scout members in the Outreach program.

Click here for a brief tutorial (requires Flash Player)

Click here for an overview.

To renew your unit charter on-line:

  • Sixty days before your unit’s expiration date, select a renewal processor. This should be someone in your unit who is familiar with the members and leaders of your unit to ensure all information provided through the process is correct.
  • Your unit charter renewal packet is distributed to the unit leadership and includes an access code specifically assigned to your unit.
  • Thirty to forty-five days before your unit’s expiration date, the renewal processor clicks Recharter Now on this webpage and begins the process.
  • When the on-line process is completed, the renewal processor prints the completed charter renewal application.
  • The Unit Leader and the Executive Officer sign the charter renewal application. The signed application along with any individual applications for new youth members or adult leaders, and materials received in the charter renewal packet and all appropriate fees, should then be brought to the Council Service Center, or your district’s charter turn-in meeting.
