Now Hiring Scoutreach Program Leaders

The Alamo Area Council, Boy Scouts of America has immediate openings for youth program leaders working within our Scoutreach In-School and After-School programs. Read on...

Scoutreach

The Scoutreach Division gives special leadership and emphasis to urban and rural Scouting programs. Scoutreach is the BSA’s commitment to making sure that all young people have an opportunity to join Scouting, regardless of their circumstances.
Today, young people are faced with many challenges. Too often, they live in fragile families and disintegrating neighborhoods. Scoutreach meets the developmental needs of youth in urban settings.
Scouting, by emphasizing ethics and moral values, addresses many of the social concerns of parents and youth in our country. Scouting prepares youth to be leaders, to accept responsibility, and to care about principles and causes beyond their own self-interest.
Our biggest asset in urban and rural neighborhoods is a well-defined program based on values, learning by doing, fun, and positive role models.


Scoutreach Mission

The Scoutreach mission is to recruit strong adult leaders and to develop solid relationships with chartered organizations in urban and rural communities in Bexar county to ensure that culturally diverse youth have the opportunity to join the Scouting program.


Scoutreach Strategies
  • Develop strategic support to ensure that emphasis is funded and pursued in the long term.
  • Develop strategic partnerships with potential chartered organizations in the community.
  • Develop stable units.
  • Increase the number of youth participating in the Scouting program.
  • Quantify results.

In-School Scouting

In-School Scouting provides a Scouting experience for boys during the school year. The bi-weekly sessions are held during the physical education class in order to preserve the integrity of the instructional schedule.

After-School Scouting

After-School Scouting is held at a neighborhood center or public school in which program specialists meet weekly and emphasize character development, family understanding, and personal achievement through a variety of activities.

Finally, the Alamo Area Council’s camping programs combine fun and education. Special program themes are developed to make the experiential learning experience fun for youth and their peers while achieving life skills. Themes like the environment, first aid, nature, conflict resolution, ethics, teamwork, and helping others are all woven into adventuresome activities for Cub Scouts.
