Who Are The Professionals

The Boy scouts of America provides a program for young people that builds desirable qualities of character, trains them in the responsibilities of participating in citizenship, and develops their personal fitness. Scouting serves more than 4 million young men and women in every part of the country through more than 300 local councils. Nearly 4,000 professionals lead, guide, and train more than a million volunteers. The professional staff has the responsibility for working with volunteer committees and community leaders to recruit, train, guide, and inspire them to become involved in the program of Scouting.
