Each month, Boy Scout councils across the United States serve Americans through the Good Turn for America initiative, which encourages Scouts to "Do a Good Turn Daily" through a variety of community service projects. Good Turn for America is a collaboration with The Salvation Army, Habitat for Humanity, the American Red Cross, and thousands of other community organizations that focuses the power of volunteerism on important community issues such as hunger, shelter, and health. Started in 2004, Good Turn for America has generated more than 3.8 million hours of service to date. "Our aim is to build character, citizenship, and a sense of civic duty in our youth and all Scouting participants," said Rick Cronk, National President, BSA. "By integrating family values and activities with community service, the BSA hopes to create new traditions and lay foundations for tomorrow."
