A Career with Merit

The Boy Scouts of America is the nation’s premier youth-serving organization, instilling character and teaching leadership skills for generations. Few other organizations impact our nation and offer careers that make a real difference in the lives of young people.

Scouting professionals are a diverse group of men and women sharing a dynamic career offering independence and achievement. Their work makes a difference and calls for continual learning and problem-solving.

The BSA offers one of the most rewarding career opportunities for college graduates and professionals seeking a career change. Scouting fosters the spirit of diversity and inclusiveness among its youth members and adult volunteers, as well as among national- and local-council employees. Our values are reflected in homes, churches, schools, businesses and civic organizations in communities both large and small, whether urban, suburban or rural. We make our country better — one young person at a time.

Scouting gives you a chance to make a significant impact. It’s not just a job — it’s a profession with a purpose, benefits and achievement opportunities. Why not take a step toward leadership and consider working as a professional Scouter? Think about it: Your career has an enormous impact on your life. Finding a rewarding career that will grow with you is vitally important.
