The Boy Scouts of America, Catalina Council is composed of two districts that serve units around the Tucson Metro area and Southern Arizona.
Catalina Council Districts
What is A District?
A Scouting District is a geographical area of a local council, determined by the council executive board. District volunteer leaders mobilize resources to ensure the growth and success of Scouting units within the district`s territory.
The purpose of the district is to work through chartered organizations and community groups to organize and support successful units. The end result of effective district support: more and more youth members receiving a better and better program.
Functions of a District
The membership function strives for growth through the organization of new Scouting units and growth through new members joining existing units.
The finance function sees that the district provides its share of funds to the total council operating budget.
The program function concentrates on helping Scouting units with camp promotion; special activities including community service; training adult volunteers; and youth advancement and recognition.
The unit service function provides direct coaching and consultation by district volunteers for unit adults to help ensure the success of every Scouting unit.
