50 Years of Community Connections: Olin Stratton
Students and employees at Onondaga Community College not only contribute to the campus' well-being -- they also contribute to the community by donating their time, money, and/or skills to an agency with a mission they are passionate about. Onondaga is also proud to have several strong relationships with local, area and national non-profit agencies. Engaging in the community has been a key component of the Onondaga spirit for the past 50 years.
Throughout the College's 50th anniversary celebration, Onondaga will be highlighting individuals on campus and the non-profit agencies they contribute to. This week, the College highlights Olin Stratton, Mathematics, and the Boy Scouts of America.

Agency: Boy Scouts of America
I am an Assistant Scoutmaster
How and why I became involved: I was a Boy Scout, and learned a lot about leadership.
Agency’s Mission/Vision/Values: Since 1910, Scouting has helped mold the future leaders of this country by combining educational activities and lifelong values with fun. The Boy Scouts of America believes and, through nearly a century of experience, understands that helping youth puts us on a path toward a more conscientious, responsible, and productive society.
Scouting, with programs for young men and women, helps meet these six essential needs of the young people growing up in our society:
How others can get involved: Volunteer with a local Boy Scout troop, or support them with fund raisers. Through volunteering with the Boy Scouts of America, you will work with youth to build a better future for our country. Scouting volunteers come to Scouting from a variety of backgrounds and experiences. People from just about every occupation imaginable are involved in leading youth to become responsible, caring, and competent citizens. You'll also discover that Scout volunteering will enable you to learn new skills and build lifelong friendships while giving back to your community.
