Parents of Scouts and others in support of Scouting recently founded BSA Parents, an independently funded advocacy group, created to help give a bigger voice and better platform for the positives of Scouting in various communities.
Atlanta area spokesman and long-serving local Scout leader Mitch Leff believes that Scouting instills skills in youth that are important in everyday life, something that will strengthen “our national fabric,” according to a recent press release.
BSA Parents began around Atlanta this July, but more communities are still joining all over the country.
“Scouting is in my blood. I’m a proud father of two Eagle Scouts and grandfather to two Scouts on their Trail to Eagle,” chairman of BSA Parents, Don McChesney said recent press release. “The Boy Scouts of America plays an indispensable role in developing communities and the formation of character and values in our youth. I’m proud to carry the torch of this wonderful organization to ensure it thrives for generations to come.”
