Community Service - Scouting's Journey to Excellence

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 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.

District Community Day of Service Wrap-up

We hope everyone who participated in the Community Day of Service had a great time.  The weather was nice and we were able to provide a lot of great service back to the City of Olathe.  473 Cub Scouts, Boy Scouts, Venturers, leaders, and other volunteers from more than 20 units in the district completed 1176 hours of community service through this project.  Congratulations on a job well done!

Please make sure to take a few moments to fill out the Unit Reporting Form to record your unit hours for the Journey to Excellence program.  For more information on recording these and any other service hours, contact Kristi Ogle at 913.909.0877 or
