Hockey season is back! We're so excited to be sponsoring the GOLD Star First Responder Award in conjunction with the Lehigh Valley Phantoms for the second year in a row.

University of Scouting

GOLD is a proud partner of the Minsi Trails Council, and we're thrilled to annouce that we'll be sponsoring the highly anticipated "University of Scouting" event on Saturday, March 11, at Northampton Community College. This annual event is an excellent supplemental training opportunity for Scouts. It's the only time of the year where you'll find the widest variety of training opportunities covering all program areas in a single place. Scouts will learn about high adventure, take part in shooting sports activites, learn simple "how-to's", and much more. 

We're happy to support the Scouts and their mission of preparing young people for life, while lending a helping hand to them as they embark on their journey to financial success. We offer programs designed just for the Scouts to help them earn their Personal Management Merit Badge and provide funding for their Eagle Projects. Learn more here
