Here in the USA we have "In School Scouts." This is a school sponsor of a
Scout unit (Cub Scouts, Boy Scouts or Varsity Scouts) but during the
school day and in an exclusively urban setting, many times it is inner
city. The boys who come are not necessarily "delinquents" but are living
in an environment that tends to generate more of them than others. It is
an attempt to counteract the gang culture that is taking over the
allegianze of young people in the inner cities.
