The U.S. Scouting Service Project Internet Story
Dear Fellow Scouters, Scouts, and Friends,
Thank you for visiting our website. We are a group of dedicated volunteer
Scouters who have brought the resources of the internet to Scouting and
built an online community of resources to help all within our Scouting
organization. The U.S. Scouting Service Project, Inc. (USSSP for short) is
not affiliated with the Boy Scouts of America (BSA). However, we support the
BSA and all of it's programs, and all of us are registered adult Scouters.
We operate the USSSP as a non-profit corporation in the state of Missouri,
as a public service to the Scouting community.
Our "project" is to gather as much resources, graphics, clipart, and
associated reference material as possible about Scouting and post it on the
internet for public access. We DO NOT maintain unit-specific information
such as Scout names, meeting places, or personal information. The
information we provide is of general Scouting interest. Information on how
the programs operate, guidelines, requirements and most importantly support
documents and image archives. When a Scout or Scouter (adult leader) needs
help in a particular subject area, we want to be able to fill their need.
From clipart for Unit newsletters to ideas about games, songs, or activities
to make Scouting fun!
We welcome all Scouts or Scouters who are interested in dedicating time in
helping us with one or more specific content areas of our site. Our website
is maintained by Volunteer Team members who spend untold hours bringing this
great resource to you. Many thanks goes to these dedicated Scouters who have
built this site and provided this wonderful resource to all.
The USSSP was started in November of 1994 by a dedicated Scouter named Chris
Marsey. As time has passed, we have seen exponential growth in our site and
today believe it to be the most visited Scouting site on the Internet. Our
growth and phenomenal success is attributed to you, and the thousands of
Scouts and Scouters who use our website to support Scouting in their

Community. We are constantly seeking support in the way of manpower to help
build our library of materials. If you are interested, please send me an
email (firstname.lastname@example.org) indicating what area you may be able to
