Boy Scouts of America has always been a very large part of my life. It’s made me who I am, so I spend much of my ‘free’ time giving back on all levels from the Unit, Council, Western Region, and traveling across the country helping councils raise much needed funds, and giving and getting great ideas to help them in all aspects.

These are some resources to help those adults across the country who give so much of their time and energy to help our boys and girls become Honorable Men and Women.
