Scout Speech Topics

Need to give a speech to about Scouting to a non-Scout audience?  National provides a number of templates which can get you started or provide a complete speech.  They are available in Microsoft Word to make it easier to edit and personalize it to make it more your own.

But our tradition doesn’t stop there-in the past. The BSA has a nearly 100-year strong foundation, but it continues to evolve-to be relevant to today’s youth and to the communities it serves. Today we are preparing the leaders of the next millennium. The Boy Scouts of America will continue to provide values-based training to the youth of the 21st century and beyond. We are celebrating the adventure and continuing the journey.

I believe that more than ever, America’s youth, including both boys and girls from every background, culture and social status, need Scouting’s tradition. Not every American child has a positive role model. But we guide our youth into adulthood through mentoring and individual attention. It is only at this grass-roots level that values, leadership, and character are taught. It is how we must reach, guide, motivate, and inspire youth.
