Chaldean Scouts was founded in 2011 in St. Peter Diocese. It is a non-profit, non-political program launched dedicated to the development of the Chaldean youth to become strong leaders in their community.
Throughout the summer, Chaldean boys and girls from ages 10 to 18 are taught scouting, culture, history, and the Chaldean language and writing by volunteers including the Seminarians of St. Peter Diocese and the Workers of the Vineyard. Furthermore, they are taught about nature, exercise and teamwork. The Scouts take a number of field trips where they play sports and hike with scout leaders to historical monuments.
The program’s first-ever scouts graduated mid-August 2011.
