Service Scouts


Service Scouts is a program designed to award youth for their community service. The program may be used in individual families or parents may lead project groups for members enrolled in the same project. Youth are encouraged to use their skills for service. The program provides eight skills for service within each project and youth are encouraged to complete one skill each month during the Service Scouts calendar year, September through April. Throughout the year, youth will complete a Service Scouts Record Book to submit in May for awards.

Students K-12 are eligible to participate in Service Scouts. To serve, each member must complete and submit the online membership enrollment form each year, enroll in one Service Scouts project, and pay a $20 enrollment fee. Upon enrollment, members will receive a digital download of the Service Scouts Record Book for their selected Service Scouts project.

Each year a member successfully completes at least six skills and submits one Service Scouts Record Book, he or she will receive a certificate of achievement along with their year(s) of service pin. The annual pin can be attached to the members polo shirts.

My girls have participated in Service Scouts for several years now and they show Christ by serving others within our local community. I encourage you to read the Service Scouts Handbook and join Service Scouts!
