Positive Public Relations for Your Pack, Troop or Crew

Positive publicity highlights the fun, exciting community-building activities that are happening in Scouting districts and units. Good news stories help establish credibility--an essential ingredient in attracting youth members, volunteers, and potential donors.
 
Public relations is important because the more people who know about the Boy Scouts of America and the benefits of Scouting, the more people there will be to support local Scouting projects and programs.
 
You can help by communicating the exciting activities and events happening in your district and units.  This page will offer resources to help you share the Scouting story in your community.
