Educational Value

The Boy Scouts of America (BSA) provides out-of-school educational programs, facilitated by registered, background-checked volunteers, to kids from Kindergarten through 12th grade in community groups called “Packs” and “Troops.” Youth Participants are provided with up to 36 grade-specific classes annually, averaging 2-3 classes per month, covering a wide variety of topics aligned with the Ohio State Educational Standards. Unit Leadership who facilitate these lessons receive a combination of online and in-person training, including required Youth Protection training that must be renewed every two years. Young people must register for these classes annually; youth who do not register do not have access to these classes, nor do they have access to additional optional events provided for registered participants. Registration for these classes is between $85.50 and $105 per youth annually; optional events are charged separately based on participation. The Boy Scouts of America was chartered by congress in 1910 as an educational program, the only such charter in the United States.
