Where does the money go?
To help assist our youth in feeling the pride of being a member of the Boy Scouts of America, owning and wearing the Scout uniform, turning the pages of a Scout Handbook, and participating in an outdoor experience, we have established ScoutReach. This program provides at-risk Scouts and their leaders funding for uniforms, literature, equipment needs, program costs, registration, activity fees, meals, transportation, insurance, training, support and any other reasonable request from the leadership that will make each young person’s Scouting experience fun, memorable, and life-changing.
Youth who participate in ScoutReach never have to worry about how they are going to afford Scouting, how they are going to get to events, how they will get a uniform, how they will get a meal at an event or how they will fit in with the rest of the Scouts. Because the Scouting uniform each Scout wears is universal, no one ever knows the difference between a young person who comes from a family of wealth and a young person who comes from a financially distressed family.ScoutReach enables at-risk youth to overcome economic barriers by affording them the opportunity to participate in the Scouting program at little to no cost to them or their families. Youth learn skills in leadership, self-reliance, and citizenship helping develop them into the future leaders of our community, state, and nation. Without ScoutReach, many of these youth may continue to fall into the negative life patterns that have afflicted them and their families for generations.
These programs work! Boys participating in the ScoutReach Program believe in it and a survey of their views speaks loud and clear.
- 98.2% say that Scouting encourages them to set and achieve goals
- 97.7% say that Scouting has taught them new interests and skills
- 89.2% say that Scouting has taught them skills they could not have learned anywhere else
- 87% say that Scouting will help them get into college
- 97.2% say that Scouting will help them get a good job in the future.
In 2017, the Circle Ten Council ScoutReach Program served 12,818 youth and 1,019 adults within 473 units (Cub Scout packs, Boy Scout troops, Varsity teams, Venture crews and Exploring posts), providing safe meeting locations and structured settings where at-risk youth could learn new skills and develop habits of continual learning that will help them graduate from high school and succeed in life. The Circle Ten Council invested $3,233,161 in support of these youth.
