The leadership of Troop 570 seeks to provide excellent opportunities for young boys to become well balanced young men. The process of teaching responsibility, honesty, integrity and all that scouting represents also allows us the privilege of mentoring these young men to rise up out of poverty, educate themselves and use their skills to give back to the community.
Some of the ways the boys of Troop 570 have served our local community is by participating in Scouting for Food canned goods collection, Post Office Food Drive, providing helpful services for retired veterans, policing the Kokomo Heritage Trail and volunteering at Kokomo Urban Outreach in various capacities.
All of these young men come from families who are struggling to survive the demands of everyday living: putting food on the table at least once a day is a major accomplishment.
While these young men all come from families that are extremely under resourced, they are among the first to volunteer to provide much needed help to others in our community.
Scouting develops character, social skills and provides the much needed exposure to positive adult feedback and encouragement that help these young men go the extra mile. All of our activities, summer camps, building projects, etc… are funded by monetary or in kind donations given by groups, individuals or businesses that have a heart for the youth of our community.
We appreciate your consideration to contribute to this worthy cause. Your gift will provide a lasting legacy as you are helping to lay a foundation for a promising future for these young boys.
For those who had outstanding experiences growing up as boy scouts, please help us to share that same opportunity for the next generation.
With sincere thanks,
