Boy Scouts Reaching Out to Troubled Teens

The Boy Scouts of America has been seeing some success in its community outreach programs.

A Very Successful Program

In one of their programs, they have been working with juvenile detention facilities where 94% of the troubled youth in the program stay out of the juvenile justice system.

They are also reaching out to the hispanic community.

"Many of them are maybe new to this country and so they haven't been a part of scouting," says Brian Porter of the Grand Teton Council. And so this is a way for them to get involved in the community."

About the Boy Scouts

The Boy Scouts of America is growing. Nationwide, enrollment went up 6% from June 2006 to June 2007. Just last week, the Grand Teton Council registered 350 cub scouts.
