Teens Build Confidence, Break Isolation Through Local Scouting Programs
In an era when human interaction has been more online than ever, hundreds of teens throughout Northern Indiana and Southern Michigan are finding new ways to build camaraderie and confidence through Scouting programs. The Boy Scouts of America LaSalle Council is reporting that youths aged 11 through 17 are showing signs of outpacing their non-Scout peers during some of the most formative years of their lives.
Scouting Enrollment Ramps Up in Northern Indiana/Southern Michigan
Right now, hundreds of future leaders are beginning their pathways to achievement by becoming Scouts. Fall enrollment has already begun strong throughout the territory of the BSA LaSalle Council, where boys and girls aged 5 through 17 are met with opportunities to learn, grow, have fun, and experience all kinds of unique activities. These moments will be the initial character-building steps that will create the next generation of upstanding citizens and influential people.
Opportunities Abound for Young People in Scouting
With scouting enrollment currently ramping up throughout more than 150 northern Indiana schools, thousands of young Hoosiers will soon gain access to unique and fun activities that will later become highly formative experiences for their futures. For both boys and girls, participating in scouting can lead to some of the most defining moments of their young lives. It’s where they’ll make new friendships, create fond memories with their peers, learn new skills, and most importantly learn new things about themselves.
