Volunteer Leaders


vols1Scouting is a volunteer organization. Thanks to the thousands of giving adults that provide leadership and support to the program, Scouting happens on a unit, district, and council level.

While volunteering is fun and rewarding it can also be a challenge. The BSA has many tools and trainings in place to help new and veteran volunteers alike be successful in delivering a quality program to all our Scouts.

Explore the "Volunteer Leaders" menu for information and resources to help you on your way. Information under the "Resources" and "Our Council" menus may also be helpful.
