Impact

    The MTC, BSA is the fastest growing Council in the nation. 2,280 additional youth participated in Scouting over 2015 year end numbers. The Council serves 7.2 % of the total available youth population.

    Our most significant accomplishments in 2017 were:

    1. 18,639 youth and 6,312 adults served in our Cub Scout, Boy Scout, Exploring, Venturing and STEM programs.

    2. 383 Boy Scouts earned the Eagle Rank, the highest rank attainable in that program.

    3. 10,572 Cub Scouts and 4,052 Boy Scouts participated in an overnight camp or week long summer camp. 

    4.  Cub Scouts earned 7,555 ranks and Boy Scouts earned 2,296 ranks.  A total of 12,400 merit badges were earned.



Needs

   The Middle Tennessee Council’s top pressing needs are:

1. Increased recruitment and participation of volunteers

2. Increased support of our Endowment Program which would lesson the emphasis on annual fundraising activities and increase our program focus.

3. Additional funding for our Scoutreach Program, which would result in more under-served youth participating in Scouting.

 

4.  Ensure 55% of our direct leaders are trained to deliver a successful Scouting program.

 
Other ways to donate, support, or volunteer
The Middle Tennessee Council welcomes local support from the community and we would like any proposed in-kind donations to contact us at the local office to discuss these opportunities. 
We have several ways to serve our youth ranging from helping at the local unit level to helping plan camping trips, or activities on the District Level, or working a Gala Auction, Shoot, or Golf Tournament.  We have an array of opportunities and welcome your investment of time or money.

CEO Statement Welcome to the GivingMatters.com Profile for the Middle Tennessee Council, Boy Scouts of America. Our dedicated volunteers take great pride in serving the various segments of our youth population with a viable and active program that imparts them with the time honored values that Scouting espouses. Since our council was organized in 1920, many thousands of youth have benefited from the character building programs of Scouting that are a time-honored tradition in our area. It is important to note that Giving Matters.com requires that our financial information be compiled from our IRS 990. Because of this requirement, income and expenses stated in this profile are cumulative totals from the annual operating, capital campaign, and endowment funds. Through good stewardship measures the council has been able to achieve operating income exceeding expenses by an average of 1% each year as opposed to the significant differences that result when capital funds, endowment funds and operating funds are combined as the IRS 990 indicates. The profile contains considerable other information about our organization and program which we hope you will find interesting and beneficial. If we can be of further service feel free to contact us at our service center 615-383-9724. We are most appreciative of your interest in the Middle Tennessee Council Scouting Program.

CEO Comments The Middle Tennessee Council, Boy Scouts of America serves 37 counties and Ft. Campbell, Kentucky. Since our council was organized in 1920, many thousands of youth have benefited from the character building programs of Scouting that are a time-honored tradition in our area. Using a series of age appropriate programs, many of which are outdoor oriented, Scouting instills values in the youth we serve including teamwork, respect for peers and adults, self reliance, an appreciation of our environment and the value of community service. The Cub and Boy Scout Programs serve boys ages 6-17 and the Exploring, and Venturing Programs serve both boys and girls ages 14-20. Our Executive Board, volunteers and staff remain committed to serving youth with an active and viable Scouting Program that delivers a quality experience to all involved both this year and for generations to come.

Experience   I look forward to working with you to serve the young people of Middle Tennessee with the very best Scouting program. We all know that Scouting significantly changes lives for the better and, I plan to ensure our staff and volunteers work “hand in hand” to reach out to young people who are not currently in Scouting. Growing youth participation in Scouting will be one of my main priorities.

 I grew up as a Boy Scout in Enterprise, Alabama which is part of the Alabama Florida Council. I was a charter member of Troop 150 at Green Hill Presbyterian Church. It is significant to note that the troop would never have started without a District Executive and volunteers working together to get it off the ground. Troop 150 is still going strong today.

I attended Boy Scout summer camp every year eventually working on the camp staff. At fourteen, my first job at the camp was washing dishes in the dining hall. Although it wasn't one of the more popular jobs, I am very appreciative of having that experience because it taught me the value of hard work and instilled in me a sense of pride in a job well-done. In the summer of my fifteenth year, I had the opportunity to go to Philmont; this was a life-changing event because it taught me the importance of team work and perseverance. As a professional Scouter, I worked on the waterfront staff and served as Aquatics Director at Camp Wallwood in the Suwanee River Area Council. Teaching Scouts to swim was an extremely rewarding job because of the confidence that it helped instill in the Scouts. I also had the pleasure of serving as Camp Director at Wallwood in 1988 and 1989.began his Scouting career in 1986 as a district executive in the Suwannee River Area Council in Tallahassee, FL, moving on to the Gulf Ridge Council in Tampa, FL in 1990 where he served as a senior district executive and field director. He then went on to become the director of field service in 1999 at the Blue Ridge Council in Greenville, SC, and later Scout executive with the Indian Waters Council in Columbia, SC in 2004. I was promoted to southern region area director in 2008, and  served as Scout Executive for the Great Smoky Mountain Council in Knoxville, TN.

In addition to being a Scout, I played basketball at Enterprise High School and eventually went on to play at Jacksonville State University in Alabama.  I was fortunate to be a part of the 1985 Division II National Championship basketball team at Jacksonville State . After graduating, I decided that I wanted a job where I truly made a difference. Professional Scouting was a natural fit and 30 years later I can still say I love my work.

My wife Carol and I  two daughters Lauren (25) who is graduating from the University of Scout Carolina next spring, and Madalyn (18) who will be entering college in January. As with all the councils I have had the privilege of serving, it will be difficult to leave behind the great relationships formed with the volunteer leaders in the Great Smoky Mountain Council but I look forward to building strong and lasting relationships with the volunteers of the Middle Tennessee Council.

Based on the emails that I've received from many volunteers in the council, the Scouting legacy is very much alive and well in the Middle Tennessee Council. I would enjoy hearing your stories of how young people’s lives have been changed through Scouting. Please email me at lbrown@bsamail.org if you would like to share your experiences. It is important to share these stories with the communities we serve to show the specific impact of Scouting.

I look forward to meeting you personally and working with you to serve the youth of the Middle Tennessee Council.

Gangs in Middle Tennessee

Middle Tennessee's gangs are no longer just graffiti-spraying juvenile delinquents. They are armed and dangerous criminal enterprises that recruit young people with the allure of fast money, street status and a sense of belonging - even if the group they join may get them killed or sent to prison. Gangs are expanding from inner city neighborhoods to suburbs and small towns; they recruit in schools, playgrounds and neighborhoods. The percentage of Middle Tennessee's crimes caused by gangs is unknown; police are not able to track it consistently because it permeates our communities in a number of ways. But authorities say they see enough new activity to know gang activity on the rise.

Youth Violence

In Tennessee, gang presence has been on the rise since the late 1980s and early 1990s, when gangs first made a concerted push into the state. Since 2011, police have identified at least 5,000 gang members in Davidson County, and gang-related crimes have increased by 25%. Meanwhile, cities with 50,000 or fewer inhabitants have seen gang-related crimes triple in frequency nationally since 2005.
