Whatever the reason, be it the local leadership, national policies, curriculum issues, gender separation, there should be more than one option for children and parents when it comes to scouting. The Navigators USA is here to teach many of the same skills and values of traditional scouting while emphasizing diversity, inclusion, and group problem solving.
We urge you to review the material on the website, review our handbooks, and consider starting a Chapter in your community.
When you start a Navigator Chapter you are not only helping the boys and girls in your community, you are helping to bring needed choice and opportunity to others. Join us and become part of tomorrow.
Traditional scouting organizations are on the decline in certain populations and we need to address all children.
There are over 16,000 homeless children in New York City as of October 2009. The number of children in poverty is growing across the nation. We need to lend a hand and give both children and parents some relief, some space, some air.
