Blog     16 Apr 2015 | 8:00 am
Time is money, and the time your Scout unit spends volunteering in the community is no exception. Add up all the volunteer hours recorded by Scouts, Scouters and Venturers last year, and you’ve got $331 million in volunteer service to our country. (You’re welcome, America.)

That new number: $23.07 an hour. That’s up from last year’s count of $22.55 per hour.
