Request for Help: Boy Scout Jamboree Volunteers for Mining in Society Merit Badge
As you may know, SME partnered with Boy Scouts of America (BSA) and successfully launched the Mining in Society Merit Badge in 2014. We need help continuing to educate Scouts and creating interest in the mining sector and related industries. In July 2017 the Summit Bechtel Reserve in Glen Jean, West Virginia is hosting 50,000+ Scouts, Venturers and leaders from around the nation and SME has the honor to participate with a Mining in Society merit badge booth. The Jamboree happens every four years, so it is a huge event. We need help in two areas: Volunteers and financial donations.
To successfully participate in this amazing event, $40,000 is needed to cover costs. Any donation amount is greatly appreciated and can be given by the following ways:

Since SME Foundation is a non-profit organization, your contribution will receive a tax receipt. Larger donations ($5,000 and greater) will be recognized with signage at the booth and on staff apparel where possible.
At least 10 volunteers are still needed to staff the following sessions:
Full Session: July 15-29
Session 1: July 15-22
Session 2: July 22-29
