Organizational Information

Vision, Mission and/or Purpose of Organization

It is the mission of the Laurel Highalands Council BSA to make available the resources of the Boy Scouts of America to the greatest number of youth. We will work with Chartered Partners, community resources, and dedicated volunteers to enable youth to participate fully in quality Scouting programs. Through this participation we will develop confident citizens with positive life skills, unity of purpose, foster parental involvement with their children, and develop adult leadership. We will strengthen Charter Partner responsibility (ownership of units) to help ensure all youth have access to quality Scouting programs.

Volunteer Description

Volunteer opportunities vary. We have opportunities to fit every generation and your availability to serve. Volunteers help us deliver Scouting programs to local youth in your community. Some help us maintain our camps and some experienced volunteers help coach and guide other Scouting volunteers in a myriad of responsibilities. Volunteerism in the Boy Scouts of America requires approval by local decision makers, but welcomes anyone with an interest to apply. For more information on volunteer opportunities within the Boy Scouts of America, visit or call us at 814-471-1090.
