Scouts doing the presentation of colors of the United State of America. Let the Scout Color Guard come to your campus to perform a flag ceremony. We can do this at Back To School Nights, Open House, festivals, assemblies, and more.
Scouting units adopt schools and pledge to do a couple service projects or volunteer to help at some school events. Similar to the Adopt-A-Highway, scouts adopt your school.
Units work directly with the principal of their chosen schools to determine the type of projects that need to be done.
Here are a few potential project ideas your local scout unit can do to help make your school the best it can be! Your school’s specific needs determine how we serve.
• Grounds beautification
• Building improvements
• Giving Trees
• Teacher appreciation
• Helpers during festivals
• Book Drive coordination
• Set up after school events
• Clean-up after school events
• Green effort environmentalism
• Literacy programs
• Food Drives via Scouting For Food
• Being a friend
• Cyber Chip: Internet Safety
The BSA Adopt A School Program was created as a way for local units to give back to their local communities and the schools in their areas. One of the core activities scouts do is community service. Today's schools are in need of volunteers. With today's single parent home, or both parents working, it has become more difficult for schools to get the help they need. That's were scouts come in and Do Their Best to help!
Scouts maintain a garden as part of an Eagle Scout Project. It included redeveloping a blighted area into a butterfly garden, trail, and plants that are maintained by scouts.
Perhaps your school could use a garden area for life sciences, or to beautify a neglected area of campus? Let us know, we're here to help! All families are welcome to help. Together we can make your school the best it can be!
Building the Community
Scouts working on an Eagle Scout Project to beautify the community. Perhaps your campus has a need that an aspiring Eagle Scout can develop a plan to fill that need.. Just ask! Scouts are eager and ready to help. Why? Because a scout is helpful!
Scouting For Food
Every November Scouts do a canned food collection drive to benefit the Second Harvest Food Bank. Last year we collected over 68,000 pounds of food.
Your school can participate by having collection boxes and designated dates for drop off. Our scouts will then collect the cans, load them up to their final destination.
We may not be able to help everyone in need. Don't let not being able to help everyone, stop you from helping those that you can help!
