A scout is helpful...

NESA has LOTS of ways to share your gifts and talents.

What do YOU want to do?​

No matter your stage of life, NESA has many ways for you to fulfill your Scout Oath of helping other people at all times.

It really depends on you.

For instance, you may busy and can only give a Saturday. Working with Scouts on a Scouting for Food collection day might be right for you. Or perhaps you remember a Scouting leader that made a difference in your life and want to pay it forward by serving as a Scouting adult volunteer.

Whatever your circumstance, we probably have a volunteer role that will be very meaningful and worthwhile. Here are some examples…

Unto much is given … much is required.
