International Scouting

Founded in England in 1907 by Sir Robert S.S. Baden-Powell, Scouting has become the world’s leading educational youth movement dedicated to, “Creating a Better World.” The World Organization of Scout Movement empowers 57 million young people and volunteers to be active global citizens and agents of change in their communities. Connected through 174 National Scout Organizations, this movement delivers quality Scouting programs, events and initiatives locally and internationally.

Our council’s International Committee seeks to promote the connection between our Scouting community and Scouts around the world.

The focus of the international committee is to raise awareness for the worldwide movement of Scouting through:

• Unit activities

• Presentations and displays at council and district events

• Facilitating contacts with foreign Scouts and Scouters

• Broadcasting information on international Scouting happenings

• Offering support and resources for Scouts and Scouters who are interested in participating in International Scouting. Meetings are generally held the fourth Sunday of the month at 4:00 pm via Zoom.
