HOW DO SCOUTS STAND OUT?

WHAT SCOUTS & PARENTS ARE SAYING
“Exploring gives you this real-life outlet to learn. You’re not confined to a classroom … If you have experience leading people and organizing events like this, those are universal traits. Any Explorer program will help you to get those skills for your resume.”

“One of the best experiences with the Exploring program is the diversity. When you have so many people from different backgrounds, [it] breeds innovation, broadens your mind and makes your thinking better.”

Keyton, Explorer
Post 9067
“You get a lot of one-on-one time with your kid … It’s not just everyone parked in front of a TV … It’s that one-on-one time [and] Scouting makes it pretty easy to get that time with him.”
Monica A., Scoutmaster
Troop 661
“Being in Scouting has taught me that leadership and community service go beyond Scouting. I am president of my senior class and am leading my fellow officers on making major decisions. The principles that Scouting teaches are meant to be used to better home communities and beautify cities.”
Ben M., Eagle Scout
Crew 2444
“[Scouting] gave him a lot of life skills that he just wouldn’t have had otherwise … I think that’s an attribute of the Scouting program: having that ability to try different career fields and different interests to figure out what you really like and what you really don’t like.”
Erika B., parent of an Eagle Scout
North Star District
“Scouting reflects the organizations and communities that support it. Our community has produced Scouts that have grown up to serve us in so many ways. We’ve trained and mentored entrepreneurs, elected officials, scientists, educators, and a lot of great citizens from all walks of life. That is what I’m most proud of, and why I continue to volunteer.”
Tony S., Scoutmaster
Troop 4002
“To me, the future is in our youth. There’s probably nothing more important in society than to help bring these people along in life, and I think the Scouting program is perfectly positioned to do that.”
Mark B.
Council President
