Fundraising with Scout Popcorn is youth-led and helps youth be better prepared for success in the world! In addition to raising money, youth develop valuable business skills and learn about financial responsibility, marketing strategy development and time management while also increasing their self-esteem and confidence in the process.
Each spring thousands of our Youth plant trees through the Scoutrees Program. Scoutrees gives all members the opportunity to demonstrate their concern for the environment. By planting trees, youth learn about the important role trees have in our lives, the critical need for conservation, the huge impact of climate change and how we can do our part to create a better world.
Apple Day provides our Scouting youth with an opportunity to show their appreciation to the general public for their support throughout the year. Youth distribute apples as a way of saying “Thank You” to the community. Donations are accepted in exchange, but apples are not sold.
A good turn is defined simply as an act of kindness provided without expectation for compensation or recognition. This can be as small as buying the cup of coffee for the person behind you in line to creating a large community project that looks to impact your community in a big way. Through these acts of kindness, we can promote a better sense of community, friendship and compassion around the world.
