No Scout Left Behind Assistance
No Scout Left Behind: Giving All Families the Opportunities of Scouting
The ‘No Scout Left Behind’ fund is available to help ensure every youth can fully participate in Scouting regardless of their family’s financial situation. This program is only for youth from the Gateway Area Council.
Families, or Scout Units, can request funds from the No Scout Left Behind fund to help:
- Cover part of the cost to attend a camp or Scouting event
- Reduce the BSA annual registration fee ($72 annually) and/or cover the one-time new member Joining Fee ($25 the first time you join as a Scouting youth)
- Provide for a Scout’s handbook or other uniform items. Note: we may help your family locate gently used items to help meet this need
- Assist with another need which may help a Scout to have the same experience that their peers are doing.
