The North Florida Council’s
Scoutreach Division gives special leadership and emphasis to urban and
rural Scouting programs.
Scoutreach is the BSA’s commitment to providing all young people to
have an opportunity to join Scouting, regardless of their circumstances,
neighborhood, or ethnic background.
Today, young people are faced with many challenges as they often face fragile families and disintegrating neighborhoods.
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
