About this grant

The Boy Scouts of America – Tall Pine Council is one of the largest youth organizations serving Genesee, Lapeer, and Shiawassee counties with over 14,000 youth (ages 5 to 20) participating annually. The grantee focuses on character development, leadership, physical fitness, and citizenship to fulfill its mission of preparing young people to make ethical choices throughout their lifetime. Services are delivered through a variety of programs, including Cub Scouts, Boy Scouts, Varsity Scouting, Venturing, and Exploring. In addition, the Learning for Life program provides a school-based program for special-needs students, and the Urban Scouting initiative brings scouting to young people, mostly in inner cities, for whom scouts is not always easily accessible.
