Whitney M. Young Jr. Award Dinner

The Boy Scouts of America, Laurel Highlands Council offers a unique opportunity to improve the lives of young people – and by doing so, make our families strong and neighborhoods a better place to live. Scouting provides fun experiences that develop self-esteem, character, and values. But without the unsung heroes and many others like them – too many young people in disadvantaged areas would never know the joy and promise of becoming a Scout.

The Whitney M. Young Jr. Service Award is national recognition for those individuals and organizations who provide exceptional service for disadvantaged youth by developing Scouting and other opportunities in challenging urban and rural areas.

Your support  helps provide a first-class character education for the youth in our community.
