Share Your Stories

The Atlanta Area Council turns 100 in 2016, and to celebrate we’re going to share 100 stories from Scouts, Leaders, Parents, Alumni and Volunteers here on this site.

What to Share

We want to hear what has made Scouting special to you. Whether you’re a brand new Scout Parent or a seasoned volunteer, an Eagle Scout or a Tiger Cub, we want to hear your story.

It can be about a lifetime of service or just a really fun weekend camping trip. You can talk about your Eagle Scout Project or your favorite Merit Badge.

How to Share

You can share your story as a video, a series of photos, or even just a couple of paragraphs. Whatever is easiest for you.

We created a short video showing you how to send in your stories. Have a look at it below.

If you’re having trouble putting your story together, or if you’d like someone from our team to put it together for you, you can email us at 100@atlantabsa.org.

You can send in stories using the form on our submit page, the hashtag #AAC100 or an email to 100@atlantabsa.org.

When to Share

This project will be ongoing throughout 2016. We’ll be collecting stories through December. Then, this website will be archived as a time capsule of what the first 100 years of Scouting in Atlanta were like.

Be sure to send in your stories before December for inclusion on the site.

Why You Should Share

The Atlanta Area Council currently serves over 30,000 youth in the Metro Atlanta area. And we’ve served countless thousands more since our founding in 1916. Each of those Scouts has a story, and we want to tell as many of them as possible.

We’re proud of the positive impact we’ve had on our city, and we want to share it with the world. And we hope you’re just as excited to share in this 100th anniversary celebration as we are!
