Scouting

Based on the principle of duty to God and country, the Scouting program is for all youth, ages six through 21, regardless of ethnic background, creed, or physical or mental ability. In cooperation with organizations like The American Legion, Scouting offers a way for dedicated volunteers of your Post and community to bring fun, adventure, and leadership skills to young people. Scouting provides effective character building, citizenship training, and personal fitness opportunities for youth.

Working together, the Boy Scouts of America and The American Legion have created a strong foundation of leadership, service, and community for America’s youth.

The American Legion of Iowa has always been a strong supporter of Scouting, and that support continues today.  The Department of Iowa offers scholarship opportunities for Boy Scouts through the Eagle Scout of the Year program and recognition for adult scout leaders through the Adult Boy Scout of the Year, Adult Cub Scout of the Year, and the Square Knot Award (See links below to the applications).
