Philmont Training Center


Diversity and Inclusion for Commissioners

Our society is constantly, rapidly changing; Scouting must change with it. Most units are already experiencing diversity driven by cultural, generational, spiritual, and other changes in their communities, whether large or small, urban or rural. Scouting's impact on communities increases when it responds effectively to diversity. This conference provides all commissioners with knowledge, skills, and tools and techniques to help unit leaders develop relationships with youth and adults who are different from them and adapt and respond to diversity in their unit in a way that enables membership growth and fulfillment of Scouting's values and mission.


Week 1: June 10-16
