Since 1910, Scouting has helped mold the futures leaders of this country by combining educational activities and lifelong values with fun. The Boy Scouts of America believes and understands that helping youth puts us on a path towards a more conscientious, responsible, and productive society.
Today’s professional Scouters are a diverse group of men and women sharing a dynamic career offering independence, achievement, and stability. This is work that makes a difference, work that calls one to continual learning and challenge, work that offers solid compensation, benefits, and advancement.
A career has an enormous impact on your life. Often, your choice of career determines where you live and how you feel about yourself. A career with the Boy Scouts of America is an exciting and rewarding career opportunity for:
- College graduates

Our Organization Today
As the nation's foremost youth program, the Boy Scouts of America is committed to focusing on the challenges of our nation's youth.
Today, the BSA remains committed to providing youth with the skills and resources necessary to become responsible, productive members of society. Over the years, our dedication to youth has grown to include more than 300 local affiliates called local councils. Today, we serve more than five million young people-making us one of the largest youth development organizations in the nation.
Your Career in Scouting

There is opportunity for achievement, appropriate and timely recognition, and increasing authority, responsibility, and autonomy.
