Scouting 101: Methods of World Scouting in Management Education. Contribution of World Scouting methods to the education of potential managers or leaders outside Scouting.

Help Scouts to Support the Relief Efforts from Hurricane Matthew in Haiti
Hurricane Matthew has devastated Haiti, taking lives and destroying homes. Hundreds of people are without access to vital necessities like clean drinking water as they brace themselves to start rebuilding their homes and livelihood.
