Scouts of El Salvador

One positive story about youth in El Salvador are the thousands of young people in Scouts in El Salvador. The Scouting movement in El Salvador has programs which offer a positive alternative to gang activities. You can read about the Scouting movement in El Salvador in this Wikipedia article.

This week LaPrensa has a photo gallery of the Scouts participating in activities commemorating the February 22 birthday of Robert Baden Powell, founder of Scouting.

The Scouts took me to the top of Volcán Pacaya back in the day, to see the Halley Comet.

Long live the Scouts, and their values.
