Established by the Boy Scouts of America in 1978, this special recognition is named for the late Whitney M. Young Jr., civil rights spokesperson and executive director of the Urban League from 1961-1971. The award was created to recognize outstanding services by an adult or an organization for demonstrated involvement in the development and implementation of Scouting opportunities for youth from rural or low-income urban backgrounds.

Within urban and rural settings, the need to teach the principles of the Scout Oath and Law has never been greater. Scoutreach is the Boy Scouts of America’s commitment to ensure all youth have the opportunity to participate in Scouting
