BSAdopt-a-school is a program where Scouting Units adopt a local school and complete at least 3 service projects for them throughout the year.
Pack 901 has adopted Chiaravalle Montessori School, Decatur Classical, and Lincoln Elementary School in Evanston, IL for the 2013-2014 school year.
Each Scout that participates in this program will receive this patch as well as service hour credit.
