Scouting is a family-oriented, volunteer-run program. Our success depends on people like you who can share one hour--or more--a week to help make Scouting possible for the young people in our communities. 

No experience is required to become a Scouting volunteer, only the desire to help young people do their best, and to help us keep the Scouting program strong.

We have a wide range of volunteer opportunities available, whether you want to work directly with young people or alongside other adults. Become a parent volunteer with your child's unit, serve as a leader, share your skills and experience as a Merit Badge counselor, or join a District or Council committee. Choose an area that interests you and help us keep our Council moving forward on committees such as: camping, marketing & membership, program, training, facilities, health & safety, Eagle Board of Review, fundraising, Order of the Arrow, and more. 

For more than 100 years, Scouting has been one of the most positive youth development, leadership, and character-building programs in the nation. If you would like more information about volunteer opportunities please contact us at the Garden State Council.
