I wholeheartedly agree with Lisa. It is not so important that a person
*give back* to scouting but that they lead a full and productive life as
a competent and worthwhile citizen. If we as leaders do our job right,
in most cases, the scout will go on and eventually give back to society
what he/she learned in scouting. I am one of those who feels and
obligation and a privelege to give back to scouting what I got out of
it. However, I feel I will NEVER be able to totally give back everything
I learned and became through my Girl Scout experiences.
It is a proven fact that those who were scouts as children will go
further in their lives, accomplish more, and be more fulfilled people.
In that way, no matter if they register as an adult scout or not, they
are still GIVING BACK.
