Bald Eagle is a State of Mind

mh-boyscout-inline-image2-450Although the BSA is a youth-serving organization, adults still have the opportunity to participate as volunteer leaders.

To those over the age of 18 who wish they had earn the rank of Eagle Scouts, Scouting says get involved as a volunteer leader and help mentor young men in the community as they work to earn this prestigious honor.

As the Men’s Health article outlines, adult leaders can find a breadth of fulfillment in Scouting. Whether seasoned Scouters or new to the BSA’s programs, adults gain as much from Scouting as their youth counterparts, as shown through Joe’s experience with the Minsi Trails Council. And although the Bald Eagle rank is not a real one, the growth that comes with a second chance in Scouting is universally relatable.

How to Use this Video

    What I love about this article is the fact that Scouting pertains to all ages. It is skills and interests that people of all ages want to learn and/or use in their own personal life.

    Great video that captures the viewer’s attention.
