We talk about giving and taking in Scouts. On the way to First Class, scouts are mostly taking – learning skills, figuring out how scouting works, becoming a patrol. After First Class, scouts are expected to start giving more – demonstrating leadership, teaching other scouts, serving their community.
This isn’t just so scouts balance the Give-Take books before they turn 18 and leave the troop. The giving is where the character building happens.
People that only take, eat well.
But people that give, sleep well.
Think about it.
