THE STORY:

Player: Rich Brooks - Exec. VP & CFO, Composite Technology International

The Boy Scouts of America (BSA) the saying goes “Builds Leaders.”  Yes, Presidents, Astronauts, Senators, etc have gone through the program. The BSA program is designed to build leaders through education, training and experience.  The education, training and experience are not limited to outdoor activities, but include science, business, music, engineering, government, art and sports.  In all these areas the activity is hands on and not strictly in a classroom setting.  The range of these activities is far wider than what any one boy would experience on their own, so the BSA program introduces the boys to opportunities they would normally not have access to.  What I love best about the BSA program is that it is a reward based program.  The boys receive awards and recognition for effort and accomplishing a goal, whether it is camping or learning about the government.  I enjoyed my time as a scout, camping and backpacking through the Sierras, but what I found more enjoyable was as an adult seeing the joy and excitement on the boys faces for successfully learning something new and for receiving credit or an award for it.  Yes, the BSA program is a great place for boys to be boys – to hike, camp, learn new things, but it rewards them their initiative and effort, and not for just being on a team.  It builds leadership through action and recognition.
