National Organization of Scouting

 

BSA OrganizationA Scouting district is an optional geographical area within the local council, as determined by the council executive board. District leaders mobilize resources to ensure the growth and success of Scouting units within the district’s territory.

 Members of the district committee are volunteers. The district trains adult volunteers, provides district programs for units such as camporees, and Scouting shows, assists in the formation of new units, and helps coordinate the annual giving campaign.

 The district committee also provides the unit with a unit commissioner. The unit commissioner gives direct coaching and consultation to the unit committee and other adult leaders.

 The volunteers on the district committee can be a helpful resource to the unit committee. Call upon their guidance when needed.

 The Scouting professional who provides district service is the district executive. He can be very helpful in showing the unit committee how to accomplish the unit’s program goals.
