Scoutreach is a division of the Boy Scouts of America that emphasizes providing Scouting services to minority, low income, and underserved populations. Delivering traditional Scouting programs in a non-traditional way to youth from hard-to-serve communities. This organized program provides a safe environment for youth with positive adult role models who teach kids about healthy living, introduce future career opportunities, and reinforce character development. Partnering with local after-school programs, Boys and Girls Clubs, Community Centers, the Reno Housing Authority, and other Youth Centers throughout the greater Reno area, we serve hundreds of youth, providing thousands of Scouting experiences, hoping for the same opportunities that are offered in traditional Scouting.

We Need Your Help! We are continually looking to expand the Scoutreach program and to influence more youth. If you are interested in volunteering or applying for a paid Scoutreach position like Program Site Manager, please contact Doug Ramsay, Scoutreach Director – Doug.Ramsay@scouting.org or 775-787-1111 ex.221.
