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.

Have Photos or Videos You Want To Share?


We are always looking for photos and videos of Scouts out having fun to use on social media and in Council various publications.

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.
