“…there is a new emphasis on Cub Scouts serving others…”
“The following table shows how Cub Scout Adventures encourage service projects. Any of these could be made into an individualized Faith in God activity for Serving Others. I have included Tigers here to show how service is utilized in the full Cub Scouting program.

So…can Cub Scouts give service? Absolutely! In fact it looks like they will be giving even more than before. With 4 service projects required for a pack to earn the gold level points on item # 8 on the 2015 JTE form it looks like it really shouldn’t be too hard to earn those 100 points.
Cub Scout service may not be as complicated or as “big” as the older boys might do but it’s important! We need to teach them young that serving in our community and helping others is part of being a good citizen. So get those Cub Scouts out helping, teaching and serving others!
