Scouts' Counselors of the Troop (SCOTT)

Posted on Feb 23 2023 - 8:06pm
Hello Parents,
With the recent passing of our dear friends in the troop, Jonson Chen is inspired to start a parental advisory council with a network of Troop 764 parents to support our scouts beyond scouting. We have a great network of supportive parents who are knowledgeable in different fields of professions. Together, we can be valuable resources to our scouts.
All information submitted is voluntary and will be compiled as a part of the database to match counselor and scout alumni requesting advice and assistance.  
Disclaimers: No medical, legal, tax, and investment advice. Information will not be shared outside of the council.

If you have any questions, please email jonsonandamy@gmail.com.  Thank you so much for your help!
