We’ve all heard of the Boy Scouts of America (BSA), but understanding their role in society is not always clear. BSA provides a program for young people that builds character, trains them in the responsibilities of participating citizenship, and develops personal fitness.
The Education Foundation believes strongly in these young people who will develop into our future leaders for my years to come. Therefore, The Education Foundation has generously donated $15,000 to support Scouting in the Laurel Highlands Council for 2017.
“This is an investment in our community. The Laurel Highlands Council helps positively impact the lives of over 19,000 youth in our community thanks to the support of The Education Foundation and thousands of others,” said Daniel Sullivan, Development Director of Laurel Highlands Council-BSA.
The Education Foundation is proud to assist 2,011 Cub Scouts to attend Laurel Highlands Council Cub Day Camp and learn how to live healthy lives, experience adventure, and build new friendships as well as assist 2,966 Boy Scouts attend Laurel Highlands Council Boy Scout Camp and learn how to work as a team, acquire first aid skills, and learn how to become a leader.
