Scoutreach Mission

To provide access and resources to culturally diverse youth and families who aspire to be part of the Scouting program and to provide and opporunity for reaching their maximum potential



The Scoutreach Division gives special leadership and emphasis to urban Scouting programs. Scoutreach is the Western Los Angeles County Council’s commitment to making sure that all young people have an opportunity to join Scouting, regardless of their circumstances, neighborhood, or ethnic background.

Today, young people are faced with many challenges as they often face fragile families and disintegrating neighborhoods. Scoutreach meets the developmental needs of youth in urban settings as diverse as the Latino neighborhoods of South Central Los Angeles and the housing developments of Washington, D.C.

Scouting, by emphasizing ethics and moral values, addresses many of the social concerns of parents and youth in our country. Scouting prepares urban youth to be leaders, to accept responsibility, and to care about principles and causes beyond their own self-interest.

Our biggest asset in urban neighborhoods is a well-defined program based on values, learning-by-doing, fun, and positive role models.
