The Boy Scouts of America invite you to join us for our 21st Annual Whitney M. Young, Jr. Gala on Thursday, May 9, 2019 at 6:00PM at Hartford Hilton. This national award is presented to individuals for demonstrating involvement in the development and implementations of Scouting opportunities for youth rural or low-income urban backgrounds. This is in fulfillment of Dr. Young's dream for justice and equality for all.
The Boy Scouts of America
The goal is to train youth in responsible citizenship, character development, and self-reliance through participation in a wide range of outdoor activities, educational programs, and, at older age levels, career-oriented programs in partnership with community organizations. For younger members, the Scout method is part of the program to instill typical Scouting values such as trustworthiness, good citizenship, and outdoors skills, through a variety of activities such as camping, aquatics, and hiking.
