Scouting is more than meetings and camping. It is the best value-based outdoors, experiential educational method for youth leadership learning and for being prepared for life decision-making (@ScoutmasterJose). #bepreparedforlife.

The World Organization of the Scout Movement (WOSM) congratulates the United Nations and its member states for the decision to adopt the new framework, Transforming Our World: the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development. This is indeed a historic step covering areas of critical importance for humanity and the planet.

March 2012. North Florida Council Recognition Banquet. North Florida Council 2011 Silver Beaver Award.
Dr. Jose Lepervanche received the North Florida Council 2011 Silver Beaver Award during NFC Recognition Banquet. The Silver Beaver Award is the council-level distinguished service award of the Boy Scouts of America. It is an award given to those who implement the Scouting program and perform community service through hard work, self-sacrifice, dedication, and many years of service. It is given to those who do not actively seek it. The Silver Beaver Award is not earned but awarded based on nomination.
There are so many world records that are extremely dangerous (longest distance jumped by motorcycle; deepest scuba dive) that it’s nice to see one that’s for saving lives instead of endangering them.
That was the goal behind today’s attempt at breaking the record for CPR and AED training taking place at one time. Thousands of Scouts, Scouters, and visitors took an hourlong course on CPR and the proper use of an Automated External Defibrillator, or AED.
While Scouts and Scouters counted to 30 chest compressions on their training mannequins, event organizers counted Scouts and Scouters, checking to see how close to the world record they had come.
Results weren’t yet available, but one thing is for sure: sending thousands of boys and adults home with the knowledge about how to save a life was a winning situation for everyone involved.
Before one of the day’s courses, representatives from Cardiac Science awarded four lucky troops with two free AEDs.
These troops submitted winning entries in a video contest. Entrants needed to create a short video telling why AEDs were so important. Below you’ll see representatives from two of the winning troops. The first, Jose Lepervanche, didn’t work on his troop’s video, but he shared an inspirational story. He’s a Scouter from Jacksonville, Fla., and he shared the story about how an AED saved his life.
While at a council camp, he suddenly collapsed. Scouts rushed to his side and tried to revive him after calling 911. But fortunately for Lepervanche, the camp had purchased an AED and used it to save his life. He was there to tell his story because his camp was prepared, he said.
Because the troops got two AEDs each, they can keep one and give the other to a worthy community group, such as a school, church, or other organization.
