Scouting is a worldwide movement. Scouting is not just found in the United States. Scouting is an international organization made up of 162 national Scout organizations who account for 36 million members. Scouting in the United States is organized into nearly 300 local councils. The local council is the Cascade Pacific Council #492 serving 18 geographical districts in Oregon.
In order for Scouting to be successful, districts and local Scouting units depend on volunteers to plan and implement the many functions of the council. A few are mentioned here. Functions include membership growth, fundraising, adult volunteer training, program development and unit service. Without key volunteers on a district level, it would be difficult for the council to deliver quality support for our many Scouting groups.
