Emerging Markets Scouting Program

Southeast Louisiana Council is committed to making Scouting accessible to youth that may not be able to join a traditional unit. Emerging Markets is mostly but not limited to an in-school Scouting program for our youth at their school during their elective period. The Scouts receive the same opportunities as a traditional unit. Qualified paid program specialists work with the Scouts in elementary schools throughout the greater New Orleans area to deliver the program. 

Cub Scouts earn adventures that are specific to their grade and rank.  A specific number of adventures must be completed to earn the badge of rank for each grade level. Adventures may be earned in any order. Completion of adventures is how the aims of character, citizenship, leadership, and personal fitness are developed.

Soccer & Scouting Program

“Scouting Through Soccer is traditional Scouting with all the ingredients needed to deliver a quality program for today’s young people.”

The Scouting Through Soccer delivery method brings together the world’s premier character-building institution for boys and girls and the fastest-growing international youth sport. This unique integration serves as an innovative way to promote Scouting to many different socioeconomic and multicultural communities that are familiar with the sport of soccer (or “futbol,” as it is known internationally). The program combines the fastest growing youth sport in America with the lessons and principles of Scouting... Scouting's aims—character development, citizenship training, and mental and physical fitness—are what drive Scouting through Soccer at every level.

Every youth has an opportunity to a great Scouting experience. The Southeast Louisiana Council's Soccer and Scouting program is mostly but not limited to an after-school Scouting program for our youth at their school.
