The Greater Alabama Council is divided into geographic areas known as Districts. District leaders ensure the growth and success of the units within their territory. These responsibilities are broken into four categories: Membership, Finance, Program, and Unit Service. The end result of effective district support is more youth receiving the mountain-top Scouting experience.
Exploring helps teens and young adults discover opportunities and build career skills through immersive experiences and mentorship provided by local community leaders and businesses. The Greater Alabama Council is pleased to offer a variety of opportunities through our Districts.

Our Council’s Youth Leadership Development Program is for juniors and seniors in high school who are chosen to participate based on their character rather than academic standing. The curriculum focuses on Faith, Character, and Patriotism with monthly lessons, group discussions, and activities. Most meetings typically begin with a special guest speaker followed by a group lesson. The participants are assigned to a “company” named in honor of one or our Nations Medal of Honor recipients. This group functions much like a Scout patrol. In addition to the monthly meetings, the participants complete service projects and participate in a College Fairs. The program operates through partnerships with over 120 high school and 30 universities.
