I’ve had the priviledge of coming across some really good kids who come from really bad circumstances…that’s why I want to work with Scoutreach for a very long time because it really makes a difference in the life of a kid. ~ Josh Ozuna, Scoutreach Director of the Alamo Area Council. #GTA @ Work

The Alamo Area Council is committed to making sure that all youth have an opportunity to join Scouting, regardless of their circumstances, neighborhood, or ethnic background. Watch the video below of our talk with Josh Ozuna, Director of the Council’s Scoutreach program, which served over 5,100 Cub Scouts in 2019. It takes about $375,000 dollars to support this program every year.
The Scoutreach Division is a non-traditional school-based program. Program leaders support units in select schools in the Edgewood ISD, Harlandale ISD, SouthSan ISD, Southwest ISD, and in other schools through partnerships with the Boys & Girls Clubs of San Antonio, the YMCA of Greater San Antonio, and the Northside Learning Tree program.
This program caters to youth from Kindergarten through 5th grades (ages 5-11 years old). For additional information, visit the Scoutreach page at www.AlamoAreaBSA.org/Scoutreach or contact the Scoutreach team at Scoutreach@AlamoAreaBSA.org.
The Scoutreach mission is to recruit strong adult leaders and to develop solid relationships with chartered organizations in urban communities in Bexar county to ensure that culturally diverse youth have the opportunity to join the Scouting program.
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 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.
