Steve Tobin of Minnesota recently mentioned in a posting that he thought the
age of Boy Scouts should be increased to 20 or so. Here Here.
I have to say I don't know about the Boy Scout program as it exists today,
but I do feel some form of program along the explorer line would be highly
beneficial to kids in the 18-21 age group.
A lot of kids, especially those in college, get away from things like
community service, citizenship, etc. during their college years. A fun
program that is attractive to that age group, and provides them with a chance
to "make a difference" would be excellent.
Any input from others?
