This year marks the 100th anniversary for the Boy Scouts of America. The organization's founder, Robert Baden-Powell, said: "We must change boys from a 'what can I get' to a 'what can I give' attitude." Well, we know a lot former Scouts who definitely exhibit that "can do" attitude while serving in ministry. Here are just a few:
"My Boy Scout experience filled a significant role in providing male leadership in my life, during a season where my Dad's job required him to be away from home on a regular basis. The role model of the men who volunteered were invaluable in holding me steady when it would have been easy to go astray."

"More than anything, Scouting taught me how individual small steps were needed to accomplish a greater goal."
"I hope Jeffrey will be a good citizen and role model for other kids as he participates in scouting activities, I hope that kids will learn by his examples through the honor of scouting."
Jery Lee, father of Jeffrey Lee
"I was two merit badges shy of earning my Eagle Scout award, and I was ready to quit. My dad (who became an Eagle Scout himself in 1936) persuaded me to persevere. Finishing the job is the legacy of Scouting for me."
