The Westchester-Putnam Council’s vision for Scoutreach is to bring Scouting to any boy who wants to join scouting regardless of limited access due to lack of available units in the community, limited financial resources of families and/or sponsoring organizations, and/or lack of a viable volunteer base.
Scoutreach is committed to providing all participating scouts with:
- A full and standardized Scouting experience
- Full support for a successful transition from Cub Scouts to Boy Scouts
- Full support for a full outdoor experience including summer camping
How does Scoutreach work?
Scoutreach is committed to bringing scouting to any boy that wants to participate. There are two ways this can happen:
1. Scoutreach can provide needs-based financial assistance to support individual scouters in local units.
2. Scoutreach can provide support for local units to support scouting in a community.
How is Scoutreach organizationally structured in the Council?
In two very important ways:
1. Scoutreach is a sub-committee of the Council’s Membership Committee, after all, Scoutreach is membership!
2. Each of the four districts of the Westchester-Putnam Council has a Scoutreach Liaison position on its local committee. This is critically important to support existing units and develop new Scoutreach opportunities at the local level.
