 AVENUES of SERVICE:


JTE graphic
Every division of Scouting, whether a Pack, a Troop, a Crew, or the District, Service is a measure of success on the Journey to Excellence measurement and recognition program.  More than that - Service is a principle that has endured as one of the primary tenents of Scouting for over 100 years!  The idea that it is good to give back to the community that so freely gives to us is important to the BSA and is one of the endearing qualities that keeps us relevant.  Below are current opportunities for Scouting Units to take advantage of and help out the community with service!  AND Remember to Log ALL Service Hours on the JTE web-page so your Unit gets credit for a Job Well Done!

 
Geneva Nursing & Re-Hab:
If you would like to help out the Geneva Nursing and Re-Hab Center, they are in need of some help planing and attending to grounds and to facilitate interaction with residents.  A worthy project for any Scouting unit wishing to provide service and to ensure intergenerational exposure and exploration of heritage.  If you would like to find out more, contact Darlene Schnidt (Activity Director) at 630-232-7544 or email: This email address is being protected from spambots.
