Ep. 526: The Unique Challenges and Opportunities of an All Refugee Boy Scout Troop - Justin Wilson


Justin Wilson is a volunteer scout leader for Troop 1532, an all-refugee Boy Scout Troop in Aurora, CO. In this interview, we talk about how the unique troop was formed, how it serves refugee boys, and what they strive to teach each Scout. From mitigating different backgrounds to cultural preferences, and even food, every aspect of operating this troop is so different than a typical Boy Scout troop, yet provides the most fascinating stories of outdoor adventure.

We hope you enjoy and if you’d like to learn more about Justin and the troop, or you believe you can fill any of their needs, please get in touch.
