Now Hiring Scoutreach Program Leaders to Serve Youth
What is Scoutreach? Many people’s eyes glaze over when I tell them what I do when they ask me. I’m the Scoutreach program coordinator, but it’s best understood through the phrase “Scouting Plus Outreach Equals Scoutreach.” Please consider joining our movement! We have openings!
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.
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.
