Cornhusker Council ScoutReach

What is ScoutReach?

Scoutreach is the Boy Scouts of America's commitment to making sure that all young people have an opportunity to join Scouting, regardless of their circumstances, neighborhood, or ethnic background.  The Scoutreach Program gives special leadership and emphasis to urban Scouting programs.

Scoutreach meets the developmental needs of youth in many neighborhoods considered at-risk within Lancaster and Otoe County.  This program emphasizing ethics and moral values, addresses many of the social concerns of parents and youth in our country. Scouts learn lessons about life, and the value of being a responsible person of character and integrity. These lessons come through spending significant time and sharing experiences with families, Scout leaders, and fellow Scouts.

How can you get involved?
