Dan Beard Council continues to follow the most current guidelines issued by the CDC, Ohio Department of Health, and local health departments to help ensure we keep everyone safe while delivering life-changing programs to support local youth.

The objectives of the Whitney M. Young, Jr. Service Award are:

  • To recognize an individual or company for its involvement in helping creating a better environment for low income or rural neighborhoods with use of Scouting or other programs.
  • To showcase ScoutREACH Scouting programs that give special leadership and emphasis to urban or rural area programs.
  • To raise funds to support ScoutREACH efforts in the Dan Beard Council. Over 90% of the funding, leadership and program fees in the Hopkins District are provided by the Council. Hopkins is the beneficiary of the funds raised from this event. This year, over 1800 youth will be active and engaged in Scouting through the Hopkins District
