Youth & Teen Leadership
A New Generation of Leaders
Partnering with SCOPE empowers youth and teens to help other children gain access to similar experiences that otherwise would not be possible if not for their efforts.
Groups + Individuals
I have had a very great experience at overnight camp and think that every child deserves to go to camp.

Future Leaders of SCOPE
SCOPE is proud to recognize youth and teens who are committed to making camp possible for less fortunate children through volunteering their time and providing leadership throughout the year in support of SCOPE.
Each year, engaged youth and teens qualify to be nominated for the SCOPE Leadership Award. The award recognizes a member of either the SCOPE Associate Board or the SCOPE Junior Leadership Council who demonstrates a strong commitment to improving the lives of children through their involvement with SCOPE. Teen recipients also receive a Jefferson Award through our partnership with Multiplying Good, a national nonprofit focused on elevating public service.
