“boy scouts of America” is the largest
scouting organization of America and also known as one of the largest youth
organizations. The organization provides their services to make the youth responsible and well-disciplined citizens,
enhance their character and behavior development and improve their
self-sufficiency through outdoor activities. Students can get lots of benefits
in participating in the services of Boy
Scouts organization. The organization provides them to try new things in their
life by providing their services in
social welfare, building self-confidence and strengthening their moral
standards (scouting, 2017).
boy scouts face some of the challenges like the communication gap between them
and their parents. Some of the scouts also involved
in the services to their fundraising. To make their parents understand their participation
as a boy scout. Many of the chartered organization's
partners with the “boy scouts of America.” Other organizations such as service
clubs, churches, and community groups
partner with the boy scouts of America. Some of the social clubs and groups
like “Kiwanis clubs” and “Alpha Phi Alpha Fraternity, Inc.” also partner with
the organization for the implementation of an educational
collaboration with the program to enhance and empower the youth (kiwanis, n.d.).
2016 USA Archery announced its partnership with the “boy scouts of America”.
This partnership benefits the nation as well the organization in many ways. It will
increase the motivation among the youth to participate in the archery sport. Boy
scouts of America also partnered with school and university to benefit the
students in learning Life curriculum changes from behavior to career education lesson
plan topics. The Boy
Scouts of America failed to maintain its
partnership with the “LDS and Catholic church” because of some bad decisions.
Also the “Murfreesboro church” ends a partnership
with the organization when they allow the gay scouts in their organization. The organization should allow the
girl's scouts to take part in the organization. Also,
the organization should encourage the involvement
of girls in this program (scouting, 2016).
Every volunteer has a specific function
in the organization. They have something valuable to give to the organization.
The volunteer staff is in charge of
on-time contract reestablishments, unit administration, and month to month
roundtables in the locale and offer initiative to enlisting, preparing, and
supervision of a great staff. The
benefits of volunteers for the organization are vast. Volunteers invest a lot
of energy to guarantee the accomplishment of Scouting in their groups. The normal Scout volunteer gives 20 hours of
administration every month, and 96 percent of volunteers say they would
prescribe volunteering for the BSA to different grown-ups (Jordan, 2016).
Volunteering and performing service
learning have not many differences among
them. The service learning is free from time-bound,
can invest their hours in the services as per their desire. On the other hand, volunteers need to involve with the
program on a permanent basis or for long-term projects. Sometimes the volunteers required to give their 20 hours in a month
for the BSA. A service project has not restricted hours, and they work for the unit sponsored projects. While volunteers have sometimes need to play the role
of leaders to guide the young students enrolled in the program. The
benefits of service learnings at the BSA are that they create better citizens,
good leaders, players, better employees. They also help to increase the patience
and tolerance power in a student and make them able to think new ideas and
opinions towards social welfare (scouting, 2017).
