Why I am a Leader

I'm not a Scouting leader for the easy hours, high pay,
parents' gratitude, power or prestige.
I'm a leader because I want the world for your child and mine
a world they can share and help shape; a world of love and laughter,
where they can show compassion.

I want them to look at the stars, a sunrise, a sunset, the work and
world of a man and feel its beauty inside of themselves.
I want to help them learn to finish anything they start and do it well,
and to guide them to know their worth
with a deeper understanding of themselves.

I want to help shape adults who have strength of character
and are sensitive to the needs of others.
I want them to be the best they can be.
I'm giving of myself and my time. I reap rewards far beyond what I give.
I receive for my children, your children, and future children a better world.

Anyone who can teach me or show me a better way to do this job,
anyone who gives of their time to help me become a better leader, and
anyone who by action or deed makes the Scouting program come alive
will forever have my undying gratitude.

How much is a Scout leader paid , I hear you ask

My wage consists of smiles and laughter ,
observing a childs growing self confidence and
the look of personal triump on the face of a child who has achieved
more than they thought they could

I am a Scouting Leader because I care.
