Scoutership PTC 2018

Written by

PTC

 UPDATE 5/16/18. The Scoutership is closed for this year.  We were able to help FOUR Scouters! Feel free to donate for 2019 on our Donate button to the right!

 

“Hello” all Scouters out there! The leadership development foundation I volunteer with (oafound.org) agreed to my proposal to help a Scouter in 2018 attend Commissioner’s Week June 10-16 at Philmont through a Scoutership. I will be attending the Advanced Leadership Seminar and there are a multitude of interesting programs. http://www.philmontscoutranch.org/PTC/ConferencesE.aspx

The Scoutership will basically pay for 50% of the Philmont fee and travel expenses. We are trying to help someone who needs a bit of an assistance. Those interested will simply supply via an email to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. the answers to:

  1. What course you would take and the reason? (Think Eagle Board type of answer)
  2. How much will the trip cost including fees and travel (Don’t be shy, but be budget minded).

Yours in Scouting

Mission Statement

Written by

Oahu Adventures Foundation, Inc.

Mission Statement

We support activities that promote leadership training and scuba diving for several audiences.

First, we develop youth through leadership training, environmental awareness and action, and teaching employable skills through scuba diving instruction and participation. We do this in conjunction with other nonprofits such as Project Aware, Ocean Conservancy, the Boy Scouts of America, and others appropriate to our youth development goal. We provide opportunities for youth to participate fully in projects that develop leadership, environmental awareness, and employable skills.

Second, we continue to develop adjunct leadership training methods and materials to support the teaching of dive professionals to be leaders not just teachers.

Third, we support the special hard and soft cost needs associated with diving with a handicap. We do this through raising and distributing money to offset costs of equipment, instruction, diving, and dive travel that can be much higher than average. We also support the research, cataloguing, and communicating of the best ways for handicapped divers to enjoy dive travel.

Fourth, we use our leadership training research and expertise to develop programming for the non-diving community such as our Five Star Leadership® methodology. We support leadership training such as Philmont Training Center of the BSA.
