Responsibilities include six evening meetings, plus an annual retreat, specific committee assignments (Programs, Finance, Marketing, Development, etc.) and support of fundraising events.

“I volunteer, even though my son is grown, because Scouts teaches young men and women valuable life skills, such as leadership, teamwork, and responsibility. I also feel it is important for young adults to be exposed to the outdoors and to be good stewards of the environment. Scouts provides these opportunities. As a bonus, I enjoy getting to know the youth of our community while experiencing beautiful areas of California.”
