Dorchester Boy Scouts Looking For A Few, Good Young Men

Dorchester Boy Scouts recently checked out DHS' industrial
arts building and received instruction from Mr. Bruha.
How do you get boys more engaged in their community and school? How do you get them to care?

You start at a young age.  No politician or government program can do it for you.

One tried and true method over the years has been the Boy Scouts of America.

The Boy Scouts is the largest scouting organization in the United States and one of the largest youth organizations in the country with more than 2.4 million youth participants -- and nearly one million adult volunteers. 

Dorchester Boy Scouts Troop 343 is currently looking for a few, good young men.  Those interested should contact Amanda Cerny via Facebook or at the school at (402) 946-2781.

The traditional Scouting divisions are Cub Scouting for boys ages 7 to 10½ years, Boy Scouting for boys ages 10½ to 18.

The Scout's goals are to train youth in responsible citizenship, character development, and self-reliance through participation in a wide range of outdoor activities, and educational programs.  At older age levels, career-oriented programs in partnership with community organizations is the primary missing. 

For younger members, the Scouting method is part of the program to instill typical Scouting values such as trustworthiness, good citizenship, and outdoors skills.

There's no reason Dorchester shouldn't have a strong scouting program.  Our hats off to the volunteers and mentors helping with the program.
