How to Sponsor a Scouting Program

For nearly one hundred years, the Boy Scouts of America has provided a premier development program for American youth.  The Scouting program epitomizes the cornerstones of American society–duty to God, country, community and self. Many of our country’s most prominent citizens and civic and military leaders have had a strong Scouting background.

The Boy Scouts of America grants charters to community organizations, churches, and service clubs to operate Scouting programs. What a wonderful community outreach program!  If your organization would like to become a chartering institution and sponsor a Scouting unit, contact our Membership Chairman for more information on how to get started.  Information is also available on the  National BSA website.
