What FOS Supports

The Dan Beard Council is one of the largest Councils in the nation serving 12 counties in Ohio and Northern Kentucky. The Council is staffed by 46 professional Scouters with approximately 6,000 adult volunteers delivering the Scouting program to more than 30,000 youth. We are joined by nearly 300 charter partner organizations sponsoring the 500+ Cub Scout, Boy Scout, Venturing, and Exploring units in our Council. The Council’s goal is to be the premier leader in youth development. Every day children are prevented from attending school, adults are unable to work. Walking becomes unbearable. A new pair of shoes provides relief in many developing nations around the globe, in times of disaster, and helps bridge the economic gap in the United States and Canada.
