NESA Pittsburgh News

NESA Pittsburgh Fall Membership Meeting has been canceled.

I am disappointed to announce that we will be postponing our semi-annual Beer and Brats evening, originally scheduled for November 12th until May 13th, 2021.  While the decision did not come easy, it is intended to continue to keep people safe and eliminate any conflict as to whether one should attend or not.

The NESA Pittsburgh Board meeting will continue to be held, but as with our previous meeting, it will be held virtually.  A separate invitation will be emailed to Board Members.

The NESA Pittsburgh Board of Directors has continued to progress.  Please keep an eye out for upcoming volunteer opportunities, including Merit Badge Counseling and Service Projects.

I appreciate your commitment to Scouting and look forward to seeing you all soon.

Yours in Scouting,

Ron Herring

Save the date for the 6th Annual Eagle Career Day

Saturday March 6th, 2021 8:30 am – 2:00 pm

On March 7th 2020, the 5th annual Eagle Career Day took place at the University of Pittsburgh’s campus.  We were lucky enough to have our event just before the COVID-19 outbreak.  Our primary goal is to inform and educate these young men and women about all the options available, so they can make an intelligent decision about their future.

Don't miss NESA Pittsburgh's 3rd Annual Eagle Axe-Throwing Event!

Eagle Scouts had such a great time the last 2 years, we decided to make this an annual event.  Don’t miss the 3rd Annual Eagle Axe Throw.  Axe-throwing is huge in Canada. On April 21st Eagle Scouts will take turns throwing axes at a target at Throw Axes in the Waterfront Complex in Homestead. Throw Axes is generously helping to sponsor this year's event and are also offering a 25% discount to any Boy Scout at any of their locations. 

Next NESA Event is our Fall Membership meeting on November 14th

Join us Thursday, November 14th and meet with other Eagle Scouts from across the Pittsburgh area. This exciting event (for Eagles 21 and older) will include an update on all of the benefits offered to NESA members.

Thursday, November 14th, 2019 - 5:30 PM to 7:30 PM
Teutonia Männerchor

We all know Scouting’s goal is to prepare young people for life, but does it work?

Scouting was put to the test over the course of three years, when a research team from Tufts University worked with the Boy Scouts of America’s Cradle of Liberty Council to measure the character attributes of both Scouts and non-Scouts — all with a goal of better understanding the character development of youth as it was happening.
