I have been working at Boy Scouts of America part-time (more than 5 years)Pros
Working with amazing children while trying to better the urban communities.
Working for BSA is a great opportunity to work with some really amazing children. In my district, we work with less fortunate children that would not ordinarily get the opportunity to join Boy Scouts due to financial hardships or any other issues. This program is a bright point in the lives of a lot of children. Our program is just an introduction to the traditional BSA program, and we hope to have children continue in the Boy Scout traditional scouts.Cons
In part time, there is no real chance of advancement. If you are in the council there are a lot of hours worked a week. There is a lot of fundraising involved, so you are definitely a salesperson, with the goal of "selling" your district to donors.
