The World Organization of the Scout Movement (WOSM), of which the BSA is a member, is divided into six regions: Africa, Arab, Asia-Pacific, Eurasia, Europe, and Interamerica.
If you’re moving or live outside of the United States, you can continue to be a member of the Boy Scouts of America through the three BSA councils providing service to BSA members participating in BSA Scouting programs outside of the U.S.
See the map below for the service areas of these councils along with their contact information.
