One of the strengths of Scouting worldwide is the fact that many people pull together to coordinate activities and a first class character education program for our youth. In the Atlanta Area Council, we have thousands of volunteers who donate their time, talent and resources to make sure our Scouts receive the best program and support available. The Atlanta Area Council, Boy Scouts of America needs and appreciates your continued support! Below you will find information on the Council's annual operating campaign, Friends of Scouting. For information on other ways to give, visit the "Ways to Give" section on the left navigation bar.
