PROGRAM OVERVIEW:

In Coordination with the Occoneechee Council (Mawat District): 
Boy Scouts of America
The Boy Scouts of America
 is the largest youth organization in the United States, with over five million members in its age-related divisions. More than 110 million Americans have been members in the history of the BSA.  Merit Badges are one of the main areas of achievement and ranking within the Boy Scout’s advancement program, which seeks to align young men with access to the kinds of character, life, and career skills that will prepare them for opportunities beyond their Eagle Scout aspirations.   *The Urban Leadership Lab's "Merit Badge Training Program" extends training opportunities to Raleigh-Durham, NC scouts interested in acquiring badges in “Entrepreneurship,” “American Business,” “Civility in the Community,” “Salesmanship,” and “Personal Management.”  Our workshops aim to provide attendees with exposure to career, social, developmental, and entrepreneurial resources, while encouraging them to explore ways to improve themselves and the communities in which they live!

*Non-scouting youth enrolled in our "EXPLORER"  program are welcome to register for any of training sessions, and will receive an "Achievement" Badge/Certification of completion.
