Why volunteer with Minsi Trails Council?

By volunteering with Minsi Trails Council, you will work with young people to build a better future for our country. Scouting volunteers come from a variety of backgrounds and experiences representing every occupation imaginable. The primary criteria is an interest in leading young people to become responsible, caring, competent citizens.


Volunteering also gives you an opportunity to develop new skills and build lifelong friendships while giving back to your community. Volunteering provides time with your children and family as well as opportunities to mentor youth and help others.

Safety is very important. Minsi Trails Council offers a strong training program to prepare volunteers to be successful in their roles. That’s why 96% of volunteers say they would recommend volunteering with the Boy Scouts of America to other adults. In fact, volunteers believe their time invested with BSA helps them be a better citizen, better parent, better leader, and a better team member.
