Scouting is needed now, more than ever.
Think back to when you were a kid, going outdoors and being carefree. When you’d go on adventures. And high-five. When you would get lost in the woods with your friends until it was supper or bedtime. A time when you were allowed to play in the park with others and when you could invite the new kid to play without worrying about staying six feet apart.
It seems like another time.
Dealing with COVID has been tough, especially on kids and young adults. We’ve all been feeling the effects on our work, our family, our social life, and for some, on our finances. With news and events shifting rapidly, it’s inevitable that for some families, important programs like Scouting are falling by the wayside.
But it doesn’t have to be this way!
With your help, we can ensure that every youth has the opportunity to experience new adventures with Scouts. When you donate to No One Left Behind, membership fees and related costs are subsidized for youth with families facing economic barriers.
Every young person deserves to experience the world of fun, friendship and self-development Scouting offers. And with your support, they can.
While Scouting is quite affordable for some families, there remain thousands of youth across our country whose families face economic barriers, hindering their opportunity for participation in our youth-led programming.
