The District Activities and Civic Service Committee

A council is no stronger than the districts that make it up. The district activities and civic service committee or program team has two major objectives:
  1. To carry out its part in council wide activities. (The best-planned council activity will be a flop unless districts do their part in promoting it and making it a success.)
  2. To supplement council activities with other activities on a district basis.
Committee Responsibilities

It is the responsibility of the activities and civic service committee to support units through the plan, promotion, and operation of multi unit events that supplement, but do not supplant, unit program.

A district activities committee does the following:
  1. Plans and promotes a well-balanced schedule of district events, and recruits teams to carry them out.
  2. Decides how Scouting can become involved in selected needs and interests of communities in the district. Helps Scouting units take part in community service projects in such a manner that youth members learn qualities of good citizenship.
  3. Plans and promotes service projects at a district and unit level.
  4. Promotes and assists with the planning of council events (such as the council show or Eagle Scout or Silver Award dinner).
  5. Promotes and carries out the district’s share of national events (such as Scouting Anniversary Week or a national jamboree).
  6. Conducts an annual poll of unit leaders to determine unit needs and interests for district activities. Be sure the committee includes people familiar with Cub Scouting, Boy Scouting, Varsity Scouting, and Venturing.
