Volunteer

Give back to the youth in our community.

Through volunteering with the Boy Scouts of America, you will work with youth to build a better future for our country. Scouting volunteers come to Scouting from a variety of backgrounds and experiences. People from just about every occupation imaginable are involved in leading youth to become responsible, caring, and competent citizens. You’ll also discover that Scout volunteering will enable you to learn new skills and build lifelong friendships while giving back to your community.

Volunteer Opportunities

Without millions of volunteers, Scouting programs would not be possible. If you are not yet a volunteer—but are interested in becoming one—there are several ways to get involved.

Leadership Roles

Scout leaders serve in one of the BSA’s most important roles. Our Cubmasters, Scoutmasters, and crew Advisors directly mentor youth and make a difference in the lives of millions.
Please note: The BSA is committed to child safety and ensuring that every youth has a positive experience in Scouting. Before assigning an adult to a leadership position, a background check is required, and the adult must complete a course in Youth Protection.

Administrative Roles

Share your expertise and special talents to serve the Crescent Bay District.
We are always in need of active and engaged district committee members, commissioners, unit committee members, merit badge counselors, and special event committee personnel.

As Needed

You can volunteer with the BSA even if you don’t have a lot of time to commit. Help supervise a field trip, prepare lunch at a day camp, work at an event registration table, or do any number of small tasks help Scouting in your community.
