Direct Service

All BSA units chartered in North and South America, serving US citizens abroad are a part of the Direct Service sub-district. If you reside outside of the United States, and a US citizen, you can join as a Lone Scout or form a new group in your area. Please email to obtain more information about joining.

As general guidance, if you have one or two Scouts, you will register as “Lone Scouts”. Once you have a group of three or more, let’s explore an official Scouting unit.
