Emotional Video Gives Dad’s Perspective on Scouting

Emotional Video Gives Dad’s Perspective on Scouting

As part of our “Families Like Mine” video series, this new video features Juan, a Scout dad, who grew up in Mexico and came to the U.S. when he was 19 years old. Far from his home, he found a home in the camaraderie of Scouting.

He shares how as an immigrant, he works hard to make sure his kids have the best opportunities possible. Although this mission requires him to be at his job a lot, Scouting gives him an outlet to make sure he’s creating memories with his family and other families too.
