Scouts stand out as leaders
throughout their lifetime
SPONSORED CONTENT BY BOY SCOUTS OF AMERICA

Today’s Scouting is more than pitching
tents and tying knots — from robotics
to career development and leadership,
the Greater St. Louis Area Council, Boy
Scouts of America (GSLAC-BSA) is helping today’s youth build essential life skills,
discover their dreams and give back to
their communities. That’s why Scouts
stand out.
Through our programs and activities,
GSLAC-BSA helps young people learn
leadership skills, achieve goals and prepares them for successful futures.
In the Greater St. Louis area, we serve
over 68,000 youth and 14,000 adult volunteers. As these youth learn new things,
they also strengthen our community performing more than 227,000 hours of community service last year.
After all, the Greater St. Louis Area
Council, Boy Scouts of America started
the largest food drive in the nation. The
Scouting for Food Drive began as a St.
Louis-area Eagle Scout project in 1987.
It is now a national program that keeps
food pantry shelves stocked across the
St. Louis region for three months and
fills them across the U.S.
However, the programs that teach
Scouts these values of service and generosity, such as Scouting for Food, aren’t
always covered by membership fees.
A generous, tax-deductible gift to the
Greater St. Louis Area Council will fund
Scouting’s life-changing programs.
“Our mission is to equip the thousands of young people in our region

with the education and values they need
to succeed,” said Ronald Green, CEO of
the BSA’s Greater St. Louis Area Council.
“With community support, we can help
make Scouting available to any youth regardless of their situation.”
BSA teaches young people the importance of leadership. It’s the reason why
eight out of 10 former Scouts say their
Scouting experience still helps them in
their personal and professional lives.

“Your support is an investment in the
lives of thousands of young people that
will grow into a new generation of successful adults [who] give back to their
communities,” said Green.
