Official Website of Two Inspiring Eagle Scouts
Hi! I’m Arjun. I’m sixteen years old, and I grew up in Phoenix, Arizona. I’m an Eagle Scout. I wanted to write this book because I wanted to illustrate how valuable the Boy Scouts has been in my upbringing. It has given me a very unique experiences that a lot of kids my age have not had, like the opportunity to test my own leadership skills and try out different careers. I am experiencing things right now that others have to wait for adulthood to understand. Boy Scouts of America (BSA) has given me a head start on the life lessons that are critical for turning boys into strong, compassionate, independent men. I want to tell as many people as possible about the Boy Scouts because I want them to know what it can give to them.
Hi! I’m Arun. I’m 14 years old and I grew up in Phoenix too. I started Cub Scouts in the first grade, and I’m in high school now, and recently earned my Eagle Scout rank. I think this book is important for boys to read so they can understand the value that the Boy Scouts can bring into their lives. I work with the newest generation of cub scouts, coaching them as they make the transition to the Boy Scouts, and one of the most common things I’ve seen is that Scouting can change your life in a way that school alone cannot. Boy Scouts has made me bolder, more adventurous, and an empathetic leader. I want to share this message so more people can benefit from the experiences I have had the opportunity to have.
TWO BROTHERS’ SCOUTING JOURNEY
Two brothers joined the Boy Scouts of America when they were just kids. Since then, they’ve had years of harrowing experiences, thrilling adventures, and deep connections to a brotherhood that will last a lifetime. They came together to share these stories to inspire new generations of Scouts to take up the quest. This book might be for you if:
- You love exciting tales about raging rivers, rappelling from unimaginable heights, and sharp-toothed creatures around every bend;
- You are curious about how brotherhood, community, and friendship can play a role in your life;
- You want to understand more about the life lessons the BSA can teach you, like how to be prepared for anything, why it’s good to get uncomfortable, and how overcoming one obstacle can prepare you for another;
- You want to understand how leadership challenges, daring journeys, and acts of service can combine to make you a stronger, more confident, more balanced individual.
IN THE PRESS
This is the first time I have seen a narrative from a boy’s perspective. It is pretty neat to see how they detailed how they had to stand on their own two feet and not rely on their parents as much.
