AVENUES of SERVICE:
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!
