Who Should Attend

  • Current and past Scout youth leaders (13-29yrs)
  • Non-Scouts (13-29yrs) who want to help others, their community and world
  • Cub Scout Parents in Scouting leadership roles

 

Areas of Focus:

  • The Environment and Global Warming
    • Studies show this is of high concern of millennial parents, and their kids.  Scouting has been green for over 100 years, how can we lead this effort to care for the earth.
  • Social Impact and Diversity
    • Youth experience social issues daily, from bullying to concern for fairness and inclusivity of marginalized communities. Scouting is the ideal program to solve provide support and be the bridge to help solve these issues. 
  • Mental Health
    • Youth suicide and depression are at an all-time high. In the United States (U.S.), suicide is the 2nd leading cause of death for youth and young adults between the ages of 10-34. Scouting have saved countless lives by training youth in First Aid. Can programs be developed where Scouts can help those in crises in the same way? 
  • The Digital Divide
    • Today’s youth live a dual life. Their digital world is without parental understanding. There are risks that Scouting's guidelines can help. Is there an opportunity for Scouting to be in the digital space to protect and guide our youth?
