A Partnership

Northern Star Scouting wants to partner with you, our public and private schools, to meet the needs of today's families. This is more than a response to what families have been asking for; and more than equity for girls who want what Scouting has provided boys for generations.

We see it an entirely new value proposition. Northern Star Scouting seeks to impact the lives of 100 percent of the children and families in our area.

Over 32,000 Scout families ask for your support in connecting children with Scouting.

We imagine a world where Schools and Scouts work side-by-side to promote not just learning itself, but a lifelong passion for knowledge and education.
