Boy Scouts of America Troop 171

The Boy Scouts of America (BSA) provides the nation’s foremost youth program of character development and values-based leadership training, which helps young people be “Prepared. For Life.®” The Scouting organization is composed of approximately 2.2 million youth members between the ages of 5 and 21 and approximately 800,000 volunteers in local councils throughout the United States and its territories. Scouting is a youth-led, youth-run program, but the youth must be trained to be leaders. Adult role models in Scouting provide an ideal learning experience for all youth. Every adult volunteer has something valuable to offer. On a typical weekend campout, Scouts might work with an adult volunteer who teaches the Fishing merit badge and with a Scout mom to learn orienteering, go on a 5-mile hike with another adult leader, and end the day learning how to clean and cook fresh fish from someone else. The advantages of Scouting are not limited to youth. Adults also develop leadership and physical skills with every training experience. Volunteers learn, too. Volunteers spend a significant amount of time to ensure the success of Scouting in their communities. The average Scout volunteer gives 20 hours of service each month, and 96 percent of volunteers say they would recommend volunteering for the BSA to other adults. In fact, volunteers believe their time invested with the Boy Scouts of America helps them be: A better citizen A better parent A better manager A better employee More patient and tolerant of others More open to new ideas and opinions

Volunteer Activities
Boy Scouts volunteer in a variety ways to organizations that give back to the community. In addition, advanced Scouts perform service projects as a requirement for Eagle rank. These projects may involve conservation, community outreach, and other projects that benefit the community as a whole.
