Do a Good Turn Daily
Doing service projects together is one way that Scouts keep their promise "to help other people." While a Scout should do his best to help other people every day, a group service project is a bigger way to help people. While you're giving service, you're learning to work together with others to do something that's good for your community. Service projects may help the natural world, the community, or the chartered organization. #GoodTurnGiving #GTGFridays
The Alamo Area Council is happy to see our youth do a Good Turn and give back to the community,” says Michael de los Santos, Scout Executive of the Alamo Area Council, Boy Scouts of America. “Service plays an essential role in the traditions of the Boy Scouts of America.”
The term “Good Turn” comes from the slogan of the Boy Scouts of America -“Do a Good Turn Daily”- which means to do a special act of kindness, big or small.
