The problem that you describe is a universal one. There are many things that
are attractive to young people today. You as a scouter must offer more
exciting and better things to do. The hook in scouting is the lure of the
outdoors. We use fun and friendship to keep them in scouts. While we have
their attention, we teach them morality and ethics. If they learn the lesson
they will never go to the dark side of life. This lesson lasts a lifetime.

Inmediatly, appears the main question: How most groups
do to incentivate youngsters and what those groups
offer to the boys/girls against to the extraordinary
offers they can find in the streets (video-games, sex,
Could you help me giving a general panorama of
scouting today and some tips to apply in my group?
Thank you in advance, Carlos
