Why Join

SAF Has A Critical Mission

Why Join Header

In 2010, the BSA adopted a strategic plan to begin the next 100 years of Scouting.

Contained within that plan was a greater emphasis on building and expanding the relationship with Scouting alumni with the understanding that a strong alumni program would result in stronger Scouting.

SAF was formed to meet that goal as well as engage, inform, and assist its alumni affiliates (you!).


If you think this mission is worth supporting, we invite you to join SAF.

Stay Connected. It is worth it! There is so much hapening in Scouting and we don't want you to miss out. Whether you are interested in learning about new Eagle Scouts, talks delivered by famous Scouting alumni, our high adventure bases including our most recent base The Summit, no matter where you go SAF will keep you connected.

SAF affiliates enjoy great benefits. Benefits are tailored to what Scouting alumni want and need. In addition, Scouters may request to register their business discount to offer to Scouting Alumni and Friends members...it's a WIN-WIN!

You matter!

Scouting Alumni and Friends supports local Scouting by giving $30.00 of your $35.00 affiliate fee directly to Scouting. Scouting produces the next generation of our country's leaders. You can always feel good about your affiliation in the Scouting Alumni Association.
