The Grand Lodge of Pennsylvania provides programming through the Pennsylvania Masonic Youth Foundation to recognize Masons who are Boy Scout Leaders for their dedication. Additionally, the R.W. Grand Master will issue a Commendation Letter to all new Eagle Scouts in Pennsylvania.
Many Freemasons nationwide have been of great service to the Boy Scouts of America by supporting the development of Scouting units, serving as volunteers, and assisting their Masonic Lodges in forming and sponsoring Scout troops. The relationship between individual Masons and Scouting, which has existed since the founding of Scouting in America, has resulted in immeasurable benefits for both Freemasonry and Scouting.
