For over 100 years, Scouting programs have instilled in youth the values found in the Scout Oath and Scout Law. Today, these values are just as relevant in helping youth grow to their full potential as they were in 1910. Scouting helps youth develop academic skills, self-confidence, ethics, leadership skills, and citizenship skills that influence their adult lives.
While various activities and youth groups teach basic skills and promote teamwork, Scouting goes beyond that, and encourages youth to achieve a deeper appreciation for service to others in their community.
COVID-19 Service Projects
This is a difficult time for everyone and we know our Scouts want to help their community where they can while staying safe. Below are some projects Scouts can do at home with their families. Giving service and working on service hours, but don't forget to log them!
Scouting for Letters
Assisted Living centers for senior citizens have had to go on lockdown for the safety of their residents, which is better for their physical health, but have left a lot of people feeling alone at this time. We have contacted facilities in the Greater Atlanta Area that are welcoming cards, drawings, and letters of support and encouragement to help brighten their day!
If you are interested in participating, please contact Mary Gehrhardt.
