Over it's 100-plus year history, the Boy Scouts of America has been incredibly successful in facilitating life-changing experiences that youth can't get anywhere else to help young people develop into leaders in their schools and communities. But how? Imagine this: A school that offers dozens of courses in topics ranging from American Business and Animal Science to Welding and Woodworking. Imagine that the instructors (more like mentors, really) are experts in their fields who work one-on-one with students to help them complete their course requirements. Additionally, the school has developed a system to let students practice leadership by allowing them to succeed and fail under the watch of caring adults. Imagine this: This same school actively teaches youth to be trustworthy, loyal, helpful, friendly, courteous, kind, obedient, cheerful, thrifty, brave, clean and reverent. It prepares them to be leaders, to accept responsibility, and to care about principles and causes beyond their own self-interest. While some might consider this to be a fun exercise to imagine, you and I both know that it exists right here in our community. It's called the Boy Scouts of America. Supporting Scouting means being a member of a worldwide movement that stands for certain values and beliefs. As we look for vitality in our communities, we must be willing to invest in their future. Please consider joining me by investing in tomorrow's leaders. An investment from you will put a young person on the trail to success. Thank you so much for your consideration.
