Adult Membership

Adult Membership

Thousands of adults volunteer leaders, both men and women, are involved in the Boy Scout program.  They serve in a variety of jobs-everything from unit leaders to chairmen of troop committees, committee members, merit badge counselors, and chartered organization representatives.

Volunteer adult leaders serve all levels of Scouting in approximately 327 local councils, 28 areas, and four regions, and nationally with volunteer executive boards and committees providing guidance.

Like other phases of the program, Boy Scouting is made available to community organizations having similar interests and goals.  Chartered organizations include professional organizations; governmental bodies; and religious, educational, civic, fraternal, business, labor, and citizens’ groups.  Each organization appoints one of its members as the chartered organization representative.  The organization is responsible for leadership, the meeting place, and support for troop activities.

If you would like to be a volunteer with the Orange County Council, Inc., Boy Scouts of America, please contact the Council office at (714) 546-4990 or email contact@ocbsa.org.
