On my honor I will do my best
To do my duty to God and my country
and to obey the Scout Law;
To help other people at all times;
To keep myself physically strong, mentally awake, and morally straight.
International ScoutingTo Do A Good Turn Daily: International Scouting Support
The World Friendship Fund of the BSA offers a practical Good Turn opportunity for BSA youth members and leaders. Cash contributions are used to assist Scouting through the World Organization of the Scout Movement and through national Scout associations in developing countries. Tax-deductible contributions can be from individuals, units, camp, and training course groups. Unit participation in the World Friendship Fund offers a unique annual service project to benefit brother Scouts around the world.
The United States Fund for International Scouting, within the National Boy Scouts of America Foundation, provides the opportunity for substantial support of World Scouting by individual business, corporate, and foundation grants. This fund is administered by an appointed committee of the BSA International Committee. The National Boy Scouts of America Foundation has full tax privileges and is not a private foundation.
Provision is made for trust and endowed instruments as well as current support of special Scouting projects around the world. Grant proposals from Scout associations around the world are received and reviewed for disposition by a volunteer committee.
Details and links to forms to support these important “good turns” are available at http://www.scouting.org/scoutsource/International/worldsupport.aspx What better way to start of the new year than to offer service through support to our scout brothers and sisters around the world?
For questions and answers about International Scouting opportunities.
please contact your Council international representative.
As a member of the World Organization of Scouting Movement, the Boy Scouts of America gets invited to many different international/national events in different countries every year. This is a great opportunity for the BSA to connect with the world, upon the interaction with local Scouts and Scout leaders at those special events.
Participation in International Scouting events (except for Jamborees) requires approval by your local council International Representative. Learning the name of your International Representative is now easier than before. Use this link to provide you with your IR's name and send out a message to that person.
