NOTE: Exclusive event for Scouts in Boy Scouts of America

Back by popular demand, the World Affairs Council of Greater Houston is proud to provide Merit Badge classes designed to improve civic engagement, arm Scouts with global awareness, and create well-rounded Eagle Scouts!

The Sessions will take place at the Sam Houston Area Council Building. Utilizing the Council’s expertise in globally focused education, classes will cover Citizenship in the World, Citizenship in the Nation, Citizenship in the Community, and Communication. These classes will be taught by Ethan Eyre and Shane Brewer of the Council’s Education team, who are Eagle Scouts themselves.

Merit Badges Sessions: 

June 10th:

  • Citizenship in the World 9:00am – 12:00pm
  • Citizenship in the Nation 1:00pm – 4:00pm

June 11th

  • Citizenship in the Community 9:00am – 12:00pm
  • Communication 1:00pm – 4:00pm


Given the nature of some requirements, some of them cannot be covered in a single class. Prerequisites/Post-requisites are as follows:

  • Citizenship in the World – all requirements satisfied in-session.
  • Citizenship in the Nation – 5; one of the following: 7a, 7b, 7c
  • Citizenship in the Community – 3, 4, 7
  • Communication – 5, 8

Scouts are welcome to complete these requirements beforehand to earn completion of the badge at the end of the session, or Scouts may complete them after the session and have our counselors sign off upon completion.

Scouts must bring a blue card signed by their Scoutmaster or unit leader to receive completion for the requirements covered in the classes.
