Call for Volunteers PDF Print E-mail

Volunteers are the SINGLE GREATEST RESOURCE of the Boy Scouts of America!

Scouts deserve the best possible experience in Scouting. The District Committee provides support to all Scouting Units and is essential to the success of the individual programs! 

District Volunteers - We have a lot of important work on our plate at the District level and we need your help . . . either in serving District Committees or serving as Unit Commissioners. The scope of our needs is varied . . . we have seasonal needs (like Friends of Scouting), we have openings for Unit Commissioners (regular unit contact, serving closer to the Scouts), and we have work that can be managed at monthly District meetings.

To learn more about the opportunities avaliable view OPEN POSITIONS 

 
The Scout Sign PDF Print E-mail
