Cub Scout Archives: Gives Goodwill
Gives Goodwill is one of the Cub Scout program themes for the core value of citizenship. Here is what the program helps say about this theme:
“Cub Scouts learn about the true spirit of Scouting this month as they show an act of goodwill by being good citizens providing a service for someone in need during the colder months. Citizenship means contributing service and showing responsibility to local, state, and national communities. By helping fellow citizens in our local community, we remember the Law of the Pack and what it means when we say “gives goodwill.””
So this theme provides an opportunity for your Cub Scouts to help others through service projects.
How to Raise an American: Citizenship Activities for Kids This is a book for adults interested in instilling citizenship and a love of our nation in kids. It includes 1776 specific ideas for raising patriotic Americans.
Journey To Excellence Service Projects The Journey to Excellence Service Project initiative encourages Scouting units to carry out meaningful service projects.
Scouting For Food The featured core value for Cub Scouts for the month of November is citizenship. Our Pack will help encourage citizenship in our Cub Scouts by participating in the local Scouting for Food program.
Make a Difference to One This can be used as a Cubmaster/Scoutmaster/Advisor Minute or it can be used with adults to encourage more participation in the Committee.
