Faces & Places

Faces & Places showcases the contribution of NESA members to the mission, vision, and delivery of Scouting programs in communities across the country.

Give Your Eagle Pride A Purpose

Our future holds great promise for the National Eagle Scout Association’s (NESA) role in the future of Scouting across the country. On our journey to Eagle, we all faced what seemed like insurmountable obstacles. We now need to apply those lessons to make sure the mission, values, and time-honored traditions of Scouting are available to future generations.

Today you can give your pride a purpose, fellow Eagle Scout. Support NESA and the Boy Scouts of America during this, our 50th Anniversary.

What’s a Jamboree? It’s not camp. National Jamboree is 360-degrees of fun, friends and fellowship with hands-on adventure that takes you places you never thought you’d go and challenge you to try things you never thought you could.

It’s the beginning of your own heroes’ journey that will challenge you to go farther than you ever thought possible. You’ll reach deeper and lift yourself higher to become the best version of yourself.
