Register for Adopt-a-School Program
Adopt-a-School is an exciting and comprehensive new BSA program that connects Scouts with the schools in their community. BSA Adopt-A-School brings Scouts to perform community service that meets your school’s needs. Some of the great projects Scouts have done include:
- Flag ceremonies
- Gardening projects
- Donated and installed signs
- Helped out with Fall Festivals
Great new projects are posted on the blog weekly. Each participating unit pledges to perform a quarterly service project for your school during a minimum one-year commitment.
The person with the strongest connection to the school (e.g., commissioner, district executive, unit leader, chartered organization representative) should contact the principal first before making a commitment. Then, involve teachers and the PTA on an as-needed basis.
Unit commitment: Our unit pledges to adopt a school for a period of one year. We will fulfill our commitment by completing a minimum of one volunteer service project per quarter. We look forward to working with the principal and staff to identify the school’s needs and establish a plan that will bring meaningful progress.
We are honored to serve in this way, and through sustained volunteer service we hope to contribute to the advancement of this school and to the spirit of community between our Scouts and our adopted school.
After each completed project, Scouts will receive an Adopt-A-School patch rocker in recognition of their participation and accomplishments. To receive the rockers, please send the unit number, unit leader contact information (i.e., name, email, phone, address), school name, number of Scouts who participated and a brief description of service to Dominique Vega.
Please share photos of your projects on the BSA Adopt-a-School Facebook page and the Sam Houston Area Council Facebook page.
