Leading Diversity

BSA's Diverse Markets make up the largest and fastest growing group of Scout-age youth in the United States today. Scouting is committed to providing life-changing opportunities to all youth. Each of us can lead diversity efforts in our Scouting community. One of the biggest challenges we face today is that many families do not have a legacy of Scouting experiences…they may not know how Scouting can partner with them to help them achieve their goals.

The Leading Diversity course invites Scout volunteers and staff to share their thoughts, insights, and feedback with one other.  Topics on Scouting service in today's markets will include ways to introduce Scouting to and engage with diverse board members, potential staff, partnerships, community leaders, and families. This conference is recommended for council, area, and regional staff volunteers that are committed to growing Scouting through diversity.
