disAbilities Awareness Committee

Do you have a passion for enriching the lives of people with disabilities?

Our committee is always looking for energetic and inspired members to help promote the inclusion of youth with disAbilities in the programs and units of the Boy Scouts of America.

Our aims are to:

  • Empower volunteer leaders with knowledge and understanding of individuals with disAbilities.
  • Encourage unit leaders to actively promote the inclusion of youth with disAbilities into Scouting units.
  • Promote growth and development of all Scouts and Scouters as a result of inclusion.
