With the enormous time pressures in their lives, America's youth need time well spent. Through the dedication of many volunteers, the Boy Scouts of America remains the foremost youth program of character development and values-based leadership training in America. Without thousands of volunteers, Scouting programs would not be possible in Connecticut. If you are not yet a volunteer—but are interested in becoming one—there are several ways to get involved:
Scout leaders serve in one of the BSA's most important roles. Our Cubmasters, Scoutmasters, and crew Advisors directly mentor youth and make a difference in the lives of millions.
Share your expertise and special talents to serve your local BSA council. Councils are always in need of active and engaged board members, unit committee members, merit badge counselors, and special event committee personnel.
You can volunteer with the BSA even if you don't have a lot of time to commit. Help supervise a field trip, prepare lunch at a day camp, work at an event registration table, or do any number of small tasks help Scouting in your community.
