Support your Scout by supporting Crossroads
Help build the next generation of leaders as a volunteer. By volunteering with the Boy Scouts of America, you will work with youth to improve the communities we serve. 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, competent citizens. You’ll also discover that Scout volunteering will enable you to learn new skills and build lifelong friendships while giving back your community.
Scouting relies on adult volunteers to promote our mission. There are a variety of volunteer positions working directly with youth or supporting those who do. Positions vary greatly in time commitment from year-round and seasonal to a few hours a week or a few hours a year.
Note that all volunteers must go through an application process that includes a criminal background check requiring a Social Security number.
All courses needed to be a fully trained leader are available online through my.scouting.org. Steps to set up a my.scouting account are available in each new leader’s packet. The council and each district conduct additional trainings throughout the year, such as University of Scouting.
Before individuals can register as an adult volunteer, they must complete the Youth Protection Training.
