Pelathe Community Service

Community Service is an important part of Scouting. Through community service, we promote better citizenship in our members. The BSA Journey to Excellence program helps units include that as a part of a well-rounded unit program. For more information about community service, using the Journey to Excellence website to reflect your commitment to community service, and learn about community service opportunities, go to HOAC Community Service.

 

Log Your Community Service Hours

Be sure to log your Community Service hours for all projects at the Journey to Excellence website: http://www.scouting.org/scoutsource/awards/journeytoexcellence.aspx.  If after looking through the instructions you are still unsure of how to log your hours or you need your units ID number to create a log-in, please contact Kathleen Gordon-Ross.
