Xavier’s Scouting journey began in the fourth grade, and his Scouting story started like many others; a young kid brings home a flyer detailing all the fun they can have in Scouting, and immediately, he was hooked.

Fast forward six years later, Xavier completed his Eagle Scout project and earned the rank of Eagle Scout. Xavier’s Eagle Scout project is special to him because of the beneficiary, the Indianapolis Humane Society, where he adopted his dog, Rocky. As part of his Eagle Scout project, Xavier approached the Indianapolis Humane Society and asked them what they needed. They decided the most pressing need was the maintenance of their dog walking trails. After the first initial meeting, Xavier got to work. He gathered a group of volunteers that included friends and family. He assigned different groups tasks, including power washing, removing overgrown weeds and bushes, and painting railings. Through this experience, Xavier learned how to become a leader and saw how something like an Eagle Scout project can impact someone or an organization.

Even though Xavier has earned his Eagle Scout rank, he still finds ways to be involved in Scouting. Currently, he is active in his Troop and helping fellow Scouts work their way to earning the rank of Eagle. Xavier knows the accomplishment of completing your Eagle Scout project, and he wants to ensure his peers experience that feeling before they age out of the Scouting program.

Cub Scouts, serving boys and girls ages 5-10, helps youth develop the foundations for leadership, citizenship, and personal fitness through fun activities involving parents, legal guardians, and adult mentors (volunteers or staff). Cub Scouting designates participants into groups based on grade and gender before participating in activities.  

For over 100 years, our Scouts BSA program (formerly called Boy Scouts) – serving boys and girls ages 11-17 – has helped create generations of leaders and outstanding citizens by allowing youth to explore their interests, serve their communities, and discover their talents through youth-led activities like hiking, camping, and volunteering! Scouts BSA troops, such as Troop 18, chartered by Second Presbyterian Church in Indianapolis, do all this and more.

Crossroads of America Council, BSA is a youth development organization dedicated to preparing young people to make ethical and moral decisions throughout their lifetimes.
