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.
Every year the Atlanta Area Council sponsors Scouting for Food and Recycle for Good. Units that submit their reports to the Council even receive a special patch!
Always remember to log any and all service hours. We can help you learn how to log the hours and show you where to log them.
For more ideas about service projects that could be done by dens, packs, troops, crews, ships, posts – or by Scouts with their families – see this this Service Project page put together by an Atlanta Area Council District.
