Here's a sample of our volunteer opportunities:VIEW AS
The mission for the Exploring program, an affliate program through the Boy Scouts of America, is "To provide positive and meaningful real-world career experiences and leadership development opportunities for all teenagers and young adults in their chosen field of interest."
The Simon Kenton Council is one of the largest councils in the nation serving 17 counties in central and southern Ohio and Greenup County in northern Kentucky. The council is staffed by more than 40 professional and administrative Scouters with more than 6,500 adult volunteers delivering the Scouting program to more than 18,000 youth.
We are joined by nearly 400 charter partner organizations sponsoring over 600 Cub Scout Packs, Boy Scout Troops, Venturing Crews and Exploring Posts in our council. Through these partnerships, the council’s goal is to be the premier leader in youth development for central and southern Ohio as well as Greenup County, Kentucky.
In addition, we maintain and operate four year-round camps that include 1,152 acres of woods, forests, ponds, trails and camping sites. Youth served include boys and girls ages 6-20 living in urban, rural and suburban areas.
At least 1,000 youth participate in Simon Kenton Council’s ScoutReach program. Through this special program, youth in our most at-risk areas of central Ohio are delivered the full Scouting program at little to no cost to the Scout’s family. Through stipend program aids, the ScoutReach program is delivered to Scouts after school in partnership with Columbus City Schools.
