2010 Merit Badge Sponsorship Program Overview, Commitment Form, And Index

  1. 1. Los Angeles Area Council Merit Badge Sponsorship Program 2010 Thank you for your interest in the Merit Badge Sponsorship Program. Your financial leadership will positively affect thousands of Los Angeles youth and families this year. Los Angeles Youth Benefits The Merit Badge Sponsorship Program provides opportunities for at-risk youth in low-income and culturally diverse areas to grow physically, mentally, and morally in an after-school and weekend activities. By attending Scouting’s structured, safe activities, Los Angeles young people do not have as much idle time to explore drugs, alcohol, or find themselves in as many peer-pressure activities. The Scouting program is a year-round effort because the pressures on our young people increase every day. There is no better time than now to help guide youth in positive directions. Scouting addresses Los Angeles at-risk youth in the following ways: 1. Offering a place for youth to attend after school and on weekends at which he or she will learn how to be physically strong, mentally awake, and morally straight 2. Teaching the youth how to avoid drug and alcohol abuse through the “Drugs: A Deadly Game” program 3. Instructing youth how to recognize, resist, and report child abuse through the “It Happened to Me” and “A Time to Tell” program 4. Creating weekly opportunities at youth group meetings to assist the youth and young adults in learning a code of ethics: being trustworthy, loyal, helpful, friendly, courteous, kind, obedient, cheerful, thrifty, brave, clean, and reverent Additionally, Scouting helps Los Angeles at-risk youth to focus on six critical elements of healthy youth development: 1. Strong personal values and character 2. Positive sense of self-worth and usefulness 3. Caring and nurturing relationships with parents, other adults, and peers 4. A desire to learn 5. Productive / Creative use of time 6. Social adeptness THANK YOU! With your funding, the Los Angeles Area Council will ensure that the youth involved will register with the Boy Scouts of America, have the opportunities to attend summer camp, own their own books and uniforms, and enjoy the same activities as youth involved in mature, self-funded units. Your funding will also help us to create more Scout units, and to develop the units into self-sustaining, successful programs.
