Cubs Who Care Requirements
There are many ways that some people in life are a little different from the rest of us. We often refer to people as having “disabilities” and yet sometimes, these people are anything but disabled. In this Elective, you will learn about what we call compassion; compassion is caring for people you may or may not know who sometimes need a little help. Cubs Who Care are compassionate people and that is the way of the Scout. Learn more about people with disabilities and learn how a disability might effect you if you could not use your hands or your eyes or your ears. Be compassionate and you will earn Cubs Who Care and the respect of people all throughout your life.
