Does Scouting Work?

Working with the Cradle of Liberty Council and funded by the John Templeton Foundation, Dr. Richard M. Lerner and his team at Tufts University surveyed nearly 1,800 Cub Scouts and nearly 400 non-Scouts to better understand character development of Scouts. After a two-and-a-half-year period, the study proved Scouting builds positive character and prepares young people for life.

(Thank you NY Life for your gracious hospitality and continued support of Scouting!). This jam packed event has become more and more popular in the Area each year and continues to grow and gain momentum. In attendance at this years event were over 130 people (Scouting Professionals and Volunteers) with representation from all 11 Area 2 member councils. This was the largest Fall Key Leader Conference Area 2 has ever had.

The event kicked off with a 2 hour general session followed by 3 breakout sessions. We were honored to have Eric Schultz, Northeast Region President address the group and open the session up to for Q&A on all Scouting topics.
