Have fun and make a difference! Since 1910, the Boy Scouts of America (BSA) has helped change lives and build future leaders by combining educational and outdoor adventure with lifelong values and fun. 4,000+ people volunteer their time to work with Scouting right here in Western Pennsylvania, Western Maryland, and portions of West Virginia. Only a few lucky ones get to actually have it as a career.


We know that in order for people to grow and be productive, they need opportunities to learn. The fact that more than 75% of BSA’s professionals receive training each year is a testimony to our commitment to you. The BSA fosters an environment of continuous learning to nurture collective creativity; which benefits both professionals and the organization. We share knowledge, ideas and experience, creating a workforce that is involved in decision making and an inclusive work environment that ensures the success of Scouting in our community.


Does this sound like work? Share a meal with a community leader, learn from a business executive, visit a volunteer at camp, or go to an elementary school to talk with kids about becoming Scouts. Whatever your day looks like, we can guarantee it will include a lot of fun! If you are driven by hard work and rewarded by having fun and making a difference, becoming a Scout professional might be for you!
