Every Youth has the Opportunity to be a Cub Scout!
To recruit strong adult leaders and to develop solid relationships with chartered organizations in urban and rural communities nationwide to ensure that culturally diverse youth have the opportunity to join the Scouting program.
ScoutREACH is Twin Rivers Council, Boy Scouts of America’s traditional Scouting program delivered in a non-traditional way to youth from hard-to-serve communities in urban areas where the benefits of Scouting is needed, and historically difficult to provide.
ScoutREACH is our commitment to making sure that every child has an opportunity to be a Scout, regardless of their circumstances, neighborhood, or ethnic background. The organized program provides a safe environment for youth with positive adult role models who teach kids about healthy living, introduce future career opportunities, and reinforce character development.
ScoutREACH programs are delivered as an after-school program with the help of the volunteers, Council staff and our Program Specialists. Each program is custom fit to the needs of the school or organization. Programs are based upon a school calendar and run October to May.
ScoutReach Corps is a way for Scouters, Eagle Scouts, parents, and Scouting alumni to give back to Scouting by donating their skills to help our most needy Scouts. Donate a few hours, a day, or a weekend to help directly with Scouts enrolled in Twin RIvers ScoutReach Programs. Volunteers are needed to help with Cub Scout and Webelos Scout meetings, weekend events (e.g., pinewood derby, cuboree, camporee), weekend camping and summer camp.
Volunteers must be 21 years of age, take Youth Protection Training online at www.my.scouting.org every two years, and complete a BSA Scout application. If you were ever a Scout, an Eagle Scout, current or past Scouting volunteer, or are experienced with working with youth, then you have the necessary skills.
