Be The Foundation
Behind every trustworthy, loyal, helpful, friendly, courteous, kind, obedient, cheerful, thrifty, brave, clean and reverent Scout is a long line of committed volunteers who share those same traits. Volunteering has always been the very bedrock of the Scouting program.
Through volunteering with the Boy Scouts of America, you will work with
youth to build a better future for our country. Scouting volunteers come
to Scouting from a variety of backgrounds and experiences. People from
just about every occupation imaginable are involved in leading youth to
become responsible, caring, and competent citizens. You'll also discover
that Scout volunteering will enable you to learn new skills and build
lifelong friendships while giving back to your community.
Be connected with a local Cub Scout Pack, Boy Scout Troop, Venturing Crew, Sea Ship, or Exploring Post. If you'd rather work at a different level, there are opportunities throughout the Council including beautiful Camp Mountaineer. Consider Unit Commissioning or becoming a Merit Badge Counselor.
You tell us what kind of things you like to do and we'll make a match with your skills and talents.
Ask any of our volunteers and they’ll tell you, volunteering with Scouting is as rewarding to them as it is meaningful to the kids. Watching kids grow is one thing — leading them through the process is a whole new experience all together.
Be apart of the hundreds of volunteers that help make the Mountaineer Area Council a "Gold Council" and provide a great program for the youth of our area. On behalf of future Scouts, we thank you for your interest in giving back!
So you want to volunteer? That's great! Visit BeAScout.org to discover unit opportunities in the area or call the Council Office at 304-366-3940.
