Item description for Why Scouting Works for Black Boys by Justin Lewter...

Scouting is presented as a solution to the challenges faced by African American boys in this insightful resource. Whether children are raised in single-parent homes or without strong male role models, orfor thoselured by the surrogate support of urban street life, the book posits that scouting can provide boys with some necessary foundations. Scouting also teaches boys in a single-gender structure, which offers the extra discipline thatmany schools favor. As the book's pro-scouting stance focuses on the history and benefits, it doubles as an effective recruiting tool for scouting programs, as well as a useful consultant for single mothers, youth workers, and church officials.
