About Boy Scouts of America

Since it was founded in 1910, the Boy Scouts of America has been one of the largest youth development organizations in the United States for almost 100 years.  BSA aims to train young people in the responsibilities of participating citizenship in order to build character and develop personal fitness.  Aided by more than one million volunteers, BSA provides services to over four million young men and women across the country.

Interns work in several departments, including philanthropy/finance, membership development and volunteerism, among others.  Responsibilities vary by position and location, but may include working on the council budget and recruiting members and volunteers.  Interns must register as adult members of the BSA.  Over 80 percent of interns are offered full-time positions upon graduation.


Open to college seniors.  Students majoring in liberal arts or human resources are preferred, but all majors are welcome to apply.
