Commissioner Service

Commissioner ServiceCommissioners are volunteers who are committed to helping Scouting units succeed. These district and council leaders coach and consult unit leaders and are there to be a helping hand and friend.
Each district has district commissioner, and many units have unit commissioners assigned to them. Check out your district page for contact information.
Interested in volunteering to help unit’s succeed? Please reach out to your district commissioner.


Be the Heart: Scouting’s units are its heart; its success is dependent upon them; they deliver its programs to youth. Commissioners support unit leaders in developing a safe, welcoming environment and delivering Scouting’s programs effectively. We exist to support Scouting’s heart.

Build Relationships: Commissioners must develop relationships with unit leaders we serve based on mutual respect, candor, and trust. Without that, the communication and collaboration required to effectively support units is impossible.

Change Lives: Scouting changes lives – of the youth it serves and the adults who support it (both volunteers and professionals). As they adopt Scouting’s values, they become engaged citizens who strengthen our communities, nation, and world.
