kingdom-of-saudi-arabia-boy-scouts-associationChief Scout Executive Robert J. Mazzuca recently signed a historic agreement between the Boy Scouts of
America and the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia Boy Scout Association.

The agreement outlines the details for a youth and leader exchange program between the two Scout associations. The BSA has agreed to send Scouts and leaders to Saudi Arabia and accept Scouts and leaders from Saudi Arabia. The exchange program will be administered under the authority of the BSA International Commissioner: Wayne Perry.

“Exchanges such as these offer an incredible opportunity for understanding and goodwill,” Perry explained. Included in the exchange plans will be “home stay” opportunities for young people to stay in the homes of families of the host country.

The BSA hopes to begin the exchanges this summer.
