Why Am I a Leader ?
I'm not a Scout Leader for the easy hours, high pay, parents' gratitude, power or prestige. I'm a Leader because I want the world for your son or daughter or mine. A world they can share and help shape: a world of love and laughter where they can show compassion. I want to help them learn to finish anything they start and do it well and to guide them to know their self-worth with a deeper understanding of themselves. I want to help shape men and women who have strength of character and are sensitive to the needs of others. I want them to be the best they can be - whether as career people or tradesmen, young adults who are the hearts of the family. In giving my time and myself I reap rewards far beyond what I give. I receive a better world for my children and future generations.
I'm a Scout Leader because I care.
