The National Order of the Arrow Conclave provides the opportunity for youth from around the country to connect and mingle with scouts their own age in a setting of learning and fellowship. It allows youth to step outside their home community to see a wider world of people, cultures, and possibilities. They learn new skills and possibilities with the Scouting they already know but also in the world community to which they will soon venture into. The bonds formed during this week can propel them to expanded roles of leadership and citizenship in their community and in their life.
The scholarship drive provides this opportunity to scouts that might not otherwise have the opportunity. If there is a young adult willing to take these steps, the scholarship will help make it possible.
