The Boy Scouts of America has teamed-up with 12 of the nation’s leading youth programs to launch Be a Champion, #InvestInKids, a campaign designed to raise awareness and increase support for youth programs across the country.
Every day, these programs reach millions of kids across the U.S. and make a positive impact in their communities and the world around them.
The Boy Scouts of America connects youth to opportunities for adventure, education, skill development, leadership, service, and more, as it seeks to prepare young people to make ethical and moral choices over their lifetimes by instilling in them the values of the Scout Oath and Law.
The efforts of the BSA and other youth-serving organizations help young people make friends, give back to their communities, and build self-confidence, which ultimately enables young people to learn about themselves and build a strong foundation for a healthy, productive life.
These programs and our nation’s youth need champions. Because adults often serve as champions for the youth in their lives and in their communities, we invite our BSA volunteers and parents to use the #InvestInKids hashtag in their social media posts that encourage others to support youth-serving organizations in their efforts to improve the lives of children.
The Be a Champion, #InvestInKids campaign is funded through generous support from the S.D. Bechtel, Jr. Foundation. Participating organizations include, Big Brothers Big Sisters, Boy Scouts of America, Boys & Girls Clubs of America, Camp Fire, Coaching Corps, Girls Inc., National 4H Council, Nature Bridge, Outward Bound, Playworks, Positive Coaching Alliance, the Student Conservation Association, and the YMCA.
