Part of being a scout is doing service projects to benefit others.
Scouts are required to earn community service hours as part of the program. There area a myriad of volunteer opportunities they can participate in. There are one time volunteer opportunities, and recurring ones. For many years Scouts traditionally did Scouting For Food in November. Scouting For Food has now been expanded to include any service project, and renamed, a Day Of Service. Scouts can do any service project, or the traditional Scouting For Food.
