Indiana United Way Cuts Off Scouts

In what has become increasingly common tactic, the St. Joseph County United Way in Indiana has cut off funding the Scouts because Scouting no longer meets the new criteria for funding programs. The United Way has decided to focus on dealing with “conflict resolution” in the youth programs it supports and, unaccountably, it has rejected the Scout program because it focuses too much on “developing leadership.” As a result the Scouts will only receive token phase out funding from the United Way this year. Other county United Ways in the South Bend area continue to support the Scouts.
