Why not volunteer in an area where help (in most councils) is desperately
needed - Commissioner service. As you indicated, most packs use
parent volunteers as Den leaders, however, there is a lot more to be
done then serving the dens directly. Commissioner service allows you
to impact the lives of many youth by keeping the packs and troops strong
I'm sure if you contact the DE in your district, he/she will put you in touch
with the District Commissioner who will welcome you with open arms.

Subject: 21 year old Cub Scout leaders?
This is more pointed towards all of those in Cub Scouting. I know that
when I was going through Cub Scouts, all of the Den Leaders and most of
the adult leaders were parents of one or more of the boys in the pack. I
was thinking of at least helping out, if not being active in Cub Scouting
as well as Boy Scouts. Considering I'm 21 and single and don't have any
children, I was wondering if people would worry about me helping out a
pack. I mean, with all the instances and reports of boys being molested,
I don't want anyone to think I'm one of those types of people.
If it's not looked highly upon, I don't mind waiting until I have a son
of my own to (hopefully) become interested in Scouting. =)
