Considering Wood Badge for the spring, but not sure how to pay for it? Are you a Veteran with good standing in a VFW post?
The VFW has entered into a cooperative effort with the Boy Scouts of America to encourage posts to organize Cub Scout packs, Boy Scout troops, Varsity Scout teams, and Venturing crews. To further this effort, the VFW national headquarters offers Wood Badge scholarships to assist selected chapter members in acquiring skills that will better equip them to serve the youth of their communities. Members at large and retirees can qualify by being sponsored by the nearest VFW post in their area.
Apply today for a scholarship, and help “Leave a Legacy” by participating in Wood Badge this spring! More information and an application are available.
[Not a VFW Member, but interested? Other civic and community organizations also provide scholarships to members. Don't be afraid to ask any that you're involved in. They may provide at least partial tuition based on need.]
