Scouts leader/helper

Scouts are youth organizations that help teach young boys and girls how to become active in our communities. It gives them an opportunity to lean and have fun at their skill level while giving back to the community and interacting with other youth their own age outside of a school setting. It gives youth the opportunity to receive awards and recognition for jobs well done and build self-esteem and character. Team leaders need to commit time and talent to organizing meetings and activities.
