Citizenship. Perspective. Community involvement. Independence. Collaboration.
These are the qualities and strengths Scout mom Catherine watches develop in her son as he participates in Scouting.
As a Scouting volunteer or employee, you’ve probably witnessed countless similar stories of young men and women who have thrived within the BSA’s programs. Rather than keep these success stories to yourself, we encourage you to share them with potential Scouting families so they can understand how the programs you love could be the programs they love, too.
In a new video featured on the BSA’s Brand Center, you can hear from Catherine as she shares how her only child feels the camaraderie of a troop as tight as siblings. He’s grown up with his best friends, as they share experiences in the life-changing adventures ushered by Scouting.
And Catherine’s son isn’t the only one who feels part of the Scouting family. Catherine explains how parents and volunteers are embraced in a network of support.
“I can’t imagine my life without Scouting,” Catherine says in the video.

Then share with us in the comments how you think this video drives home Catherine’s point: “When you want to grow a young boy into a young man, you really don’t have a better choice than Scouting.”
