The Southwest Atlanta District is part of the foremost youth-serving organization in our community that develops character, citizenship and fitness – the Boy Scouts of America.

Operating within the Atlanta Area Council, Boy Scouts of America, West Atlanta provides educational programs that build character, teach participatory citizenship and develop personal fitness.

Cub Scouts (boys ages 6 to 10), Boy Scouts (boys ages 11 to 18) and Venturers (boys and girls ages 14 through 20) participate in action-oriented programs that fulfill the aims of Scouting.  Exploring (boys and girls ages 14 through 21) focuses on career choices, such as law enforcement, firefighting, medicine or other areas.

Scouting offers a time-tested set of activities and principles that have produced fine citizens, dedicated family members, and strong community leaders for 100 years.
