National Eagle Scout Association

NESA-DC is the National Eagle Scouts Association (NESA) for the National Capital Area Council (NCAC) of Boy Scouts of America, including the U.S. Virgin Islands.

As an alumni association, our mission is to support Eagle Scouts in the national capital region, and thus facilitate their support of Scouting.  We tend to connect through social networking events in the region, but we also organize meaningful opportunities to contribute to Scouting, our communities, and the Nation. We are always looking to connect with Eagle Scouts in our region.  

NESA Awards

Every year, the National Eagle Scout Association (NESA) recognizes outstanding Eagles across America with the NESA Outstanding Eagle Scout Award (NOESA). This prestigious recognition is for Eagle Scouts who have demonstrated outstanding achievement in their profession, avocation and community, having notable achievements outside of Scouting. While the selection of NOESA recipients is a local Council function, the nominees are confirmed by NESA.
