Profession with a Purpose

Do Something Meaningful

The Boy Scouts of America is the nation’s premier youth-serving organization, instilling character and teaching leadership skills for generations. Few organizations impact our nation like Scouting and offer careers that make a real difference in the lives of young people. 

Job Summary

What do professionals in Scouting do every day? Here’s a summary:

The responsibilities are as broad as the tasks are varied, and no two days are the same for a typical Scouting district executive. No matter where they work, in the city, the suburbs, or the countryside, one thing is for certain — this is anything but a “cubicle” job.

Our field staff are typically found in the community, not behind a desk. The job of the professional Scouter is to inspire, recruit, train, and support the BSA’s adult volunteers. In addition, they work with community leaders to rally public support for Scouting.

Specific job requirements are available in the job description, but the BSA says five skills are essential for a successful district executive:

  1. Ability to build and empower a team
  2. Ability to form relationships
  3. Salesmanship
  4. Time management skills
  5. Project management skills
