**NEW** BSA Parents
We all know how truly amazing our Scouting parents are. They go above and beyond, and they constantly ask what they can do and how they can help.
In many ways, they are our best asset to help demonstrate the value of the Boy Scouts of America and to talk about what this great organization means to American communities.
So, we want to make you all aware of a newly-formed group called "BSA Parents" that is forming and will launch on digital and social media this week.
The group was formed by and is run by parents of Scouts. The group came together so parents can use the Internet and social media to talk about what Scouting means to them. As I'm sure you can imagine, this is powerful stuff - I'm excited to share their launch video and site here https://www.bsaparents.com and on social media (please see bottom of this email).
I also want to let you know that while BSA helped with some seed funding to get them off the ground, this is an independent organization. They are not affiliated with BSA and they formed to help parents tell their stories. It has no dues, it offers no programs, and is not competitive in any way with our Councils. Their mission and stories are ones we want to support!
We are excited to see so many people taking up the message of Scouting. I am writing today with the hope that you will share this site and these videos with parents in your area. More people need to see and hear from the parents who are so involved with - and so passionate about - Scouting. The BSA's character building programs are essential for our youth and we are excited for parents to help propel that message forward.
