ScoutReach

YOUTH IN THE TRIANGLE'S MOST UNDERSERVED NEIGHBORHOODS FACE POVERTY, UNEMPLOY MENT, SUBSTANCE ADDICTION AND ABUSE, HIGHER RATES OF CRIME, OBESITY AND CHILD MALTREATMENT.

As we look toward an uncertain and challenging future, one thing we can be sure of is all of our communities will need leaders with honor and integrity. We'll need leaders that know the value of serving others. ScoutReach is a term that describes an umbrella of programs we use to break down barriers such as transportation, consistent leadership, safe meeting places and financial resources to instill the values of the Scout Oath and Law in our hardest to serve markets. Youth recruited through the Triangle ScoutReach 

Initiative will experience the same positive character building attributes as all Scouts.


Thomas Crowder's Legacy

Thomas Crowder was a proud Eagle Scout and helped organize our first ScoutReach Golf Tournament as a way to provide funding to help at-risk youth join and participate in Scouting.  Thanks in large part to Mr. Crowder’s leadership this event has become one of the largest golf outings in the Triangle area and has raised over one million dollars to support tens of thousands of young people participating in our ScoutReach programs.  He was determined to find a way to raise the desperately needed funds to help at-risk youth join and participate in Scouting.  

Mr. Crowder was elected to the Raleigh City Council in 2003, and served until his passing in the fall of 2014.   An architect by trade, and owner of ARCHITEKTUR in Raleigh, Crowder’s interest in city politics was partially rooted in his love of art and design.   

We are honored to remember his legacy with this event.‚Äč
