Navigators USA Chapter 58 Organizational and Informational Meeting

Saturday March 15 at 10:30am, in the office building

Navigators USA is a co-ed youth adventure organization that seeks to provide an inclusive, high quality scouting experience to all youth aged 5-17. UUFP’s Chapter 58 is looking for additional families and adult volunteers to help grow our Navigators program. New scouts are welcomed throughout the year.
*Adult volunteers are needed* for both short and long term service positions. Short term volunteers need only commit to one hour, or even thirty minutes, of time to help Navigators USA Chapter 58 provide a quality, inclusive scouting experience.

All are welcome and encouraged to attend the informational meeting! Email chapter58@navigatorsUSA.org for more information.
