Scoutreach in New York City
Scoutreach is a character education program that delivers traditional Scouting programs to youth in New York City.
Chartered partners host units located in neighborhoods that are economically challenged, underserved, or where there is a lack of volunteer leadership. The Scoutreach after-school program has a proven track record in over 53 public schools located in the Bronx, Brooklyn, Queens, and Manhattan. The program has a proven track record designed to help to foster self-mastery and develops new interests and skills through fitness and citizenship training in a fun, interactive environment. Boys learn about accountability and responsibility to themselves, their families and their communities.
Leadership in the Scoutreach program is provided by our trained program specialists, primarily college students who serve in the traditional roles of Cubmaster, Den Leader, etc…
Strategic partnerships such as this enable Scoutreach to help facilitate the Boy Scouts of America’s commitment to ensure that youth have an opportunity to join Scouting, regardless of their circumstances, neighborhood, or background.
