Boy Scouts of America, Denver Area Council

Leadership Assistance Program (LeaP)

The Denver Area Council strives to make Scouting available to all youth that want to participate. The LeAP program launched in 2012, bringing Boy Scouts of America programs to youth in the Denver Metro area who are affected by economic and social hardships. Participants benefit from structured, after-school or community center-based programs led by trained adults in a safe space. Unlike parent-led Dens and Packs, LeAP delivers content to our youth via paid Program Specialists who are trained in Youth Protection and other position-specific areas.

LeAP also provides activities for the Scouting family through quarterly Pack meetings and summer camping opportunities. Working with the Learning for Life division of the Denver Area Council, we organize events such as Adventure Day and Fishing Derby exclusively for our youth with multi-intensive learning needs.

If you are interested in becoming a paid Program Specialist, please contact Stephany Mesa.

More information about this program is available in our blog post.

PROGRAMA DE ASISTENCIA DE LIDERAZGO (LEAP)

El Consejo del Área de Denver se esfuerza por hacer que Scouting esté disponible para todos los jóvenes que quieran participar. El programa LeAP se lanzó en 2012, llevando los programas de Boy Scouts of America a jóvenes en el área metropolitana de Denver que se ven afectados por dificultades económicas y sociales. Los participantes se benefician de programas estructurados, después de la escuela o basados en centros comunitarios dirigidos por adultos capacitados en un espacio seguro. A diferencia de los Dens y Packs dirigidos por los padres, LeAP ofrece contenido a nuestros jóvenes a través de Ayudantes de Programa pagados que están capacitados en Protección Juvenil y otras áreas específicas del puesto. LeAP también ofrece actividades para toda la familia a través de reuniones trimestrales de Pack y oportunidades de campamento de verano. Trabajando con la división Learning for Life del Consejo, organizamos eventos como Adventure Day y Fishing Derby exclusivamente para nuestros jóvenes con necesidades de aprendizaje multi-intensivas. Si está interesado en convertirse en un asistente de programa pago, comuníquese con Stephany Mesa al 720-266-2125. Más información sobre este programa está disponible en nuestra publicación de blog.
