Advice From an Eagle...

Posted on Jul 30 2015 - 1:01pm

Mike Rowe Has Advice for Scouts (and Parents)

You may not know it, but Mike Rowe (of Dirty Jobs fame) is an Eagle Scout. He often is asked to give advice and feedback to Scouts about their involvement in Scouting. Many years ago a well-meaning father asked Mike to send a letter to his son, a Life Scout stalled in his progress toward Eagle, to help encourage him to get his rank done. What did Mike say? Well, it probably won't be what you expect. Read Mike's response here.

Why do we keep this letter around? Mike's old-school. He knows that the purpose of Scouting -- as developed by Lord Baden-Powell -- was for boys to develop, grow and learn through their adventures in Scouting. Whether they succeed or fail, something is always learned. When we let the boys "do for themselves" we allow them to grow far more than they ever will with us adults in the way. Read Mike's letter and see if you don't agree.
