Community Service Opportunities

The Scout Oath includes the phrase to help other people at all times, which reminds us to always be of service to others. Leaders might begin planning service projects by discussing various service ideas with Scouts. Adult leaders, chartered organizations, and the local government are also good resources for service opportunity ideas. Projects are more meaningful and fun if they are well-planned. Below is also a list of possible service opportunities in our local community. 

If you are an organization with a service project or volunteer opportunity that you would like Scouts to assist with you may submit information to the DAC. Send all of the details of the project including date, time, location, and project details along with any flyers in PDF format to Michael Fifhause to review. 

When units complete a service project, please register the project with Good Turn for America to ensure service hours are recorded for the Journey to Excellence program. Here are some helpful hints for this process:

  1. Your Unit ID is the same number used by your unit when recording Internet Advancement. If you do not know this number, please contact the Council Service Center at 303.455.5522.
  2. The Denver Area Council is council number 061
  3. Your local unit number must be four (4) digits. If your pack/troop number is only two or three digits, front fill with zeroes i.e., Pack 123 becomes Pack 0123.
