Community Merit Badges

Organizations add value to a community in so many ways. We highlight a few that are particularly relevant to our website and audience. We start from a position of trust: we ask listing organizations to identify categories that apply to them. We reserve the right to edit an organization’s profile and, in cases of abuse, to remove its listing entirely.
