The Scoutreach Mission
The Scoutreach mission is to recruit strong leaders to develop solid relationships with chartered organizations in urban and rural communities nationwide to ensure that culturally diverse youth have opportunities to join Scouting.
Scoutreach gives special leadership and emphasis to urban and rural Scouting programs. Scoutreach expands Scouting programs to all youth and clearly portrays that Scouting is for everyone — including disadvantaged and minority youth across America.
Central Georgia Council Scoutreach gives special leadership and emphasis to urban and rural Scouting programs. Scoutreach is the BSA's commitment to making sure that all young people 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 live in fragile families and disintegrating neighborhoods. Scoutreach meets the developmental needs of youth in diverse urban and rural settings in Middle Georgia.
Scouting, by emphasizing ethics and moral values, addresses many of the social concerns of parents and youth in our country. Scouting prepares urban and rural 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 models.
