Q/A SAF Program and Purpose
Q: What is Scouting Alumni and Friends?
A: Scouting Alumni and Friends is a program that engages current & former
Scouts and their family members, volunteers (past and present), and the millions of Americans who benefit from Scouting
in their communities each day.
SAF allows alumni to continue to stay in touch with BSA programs, hear positive
stories about the BSA's impact on the community, and learn the latest methods provided by Scouting to transform the
lives of young men & women through the tenets of leadership, character development, citizenship, and physical fitness.
SAF is also an outlet for alumni to network and collaborate with one another under the common banner of Scouting,
which may include increasing business connections and participating in service to the BSA or other organizations.
