How to Help

As always, we will need the support of adult volunteers and parents to make this the best possible experience for your Scouts. We are looking for adults who wish to donate their time to help us as hall monitors to assure the boys are in the right classrooms. 

If you have questions, please contact the MBU volunteer coordinator, Jim Snyder, at jcs@hkwinc.com  or District Executive Dan Tincknell at (317) 813-7128 or dtinckne@crossroadsbsa.org
