In 'Scouting for Boys', Lord Baden-Powell referred to the Knights of the Round Table and to St. George their Patron Saint. He then went on:

"He is also the Patron Saint of Scouts everywhere.”  St. George was typical of what a Scout should be. “When he  was  faced  by  a  difficulty  or  danger, however great it appeared, even in the shape of a dragon - he did not avoid it or fear it but went at it with all the power he could ... That is exactly the way a Scout should face a difficulty or danger no matter how great or how terrifying it may appear. He should go at it boldly and confidently, using every power that he can to try and overcome it, and the probability is that he will succeed."

Following in the footsteps of St. George, we have established a program to acknowledge the achievements of Scouts in overcoming difficulty and in achieving the rank of Eagle Scout. 

We believe that the future of our society rests in great part with the youth of today. As an almost 700 year old Order we support the development of youth in a way that reflects our foundation in chivalric values. 

We have presented our awards at Courts of Honor across the country as well as to Expatriate BSA Eagles overseas.   In a letter accompanying each award Chevalier James P. Jones, KCSt.G states, “the Order of St. George……is a symbol of civic responsibility, and we share many of the same goals as the Boy Scouts of America.  These include the promotion of good citizenship in the teaching of patriotism, the fostering of civic duties and responsibilities by performing good works, and the love and honor of freedom and the flag. Concepts that are near and dear to the Boy Scouts.”
The award consists of a certificate of achievement and a specially designed gift in the form of a custom made patch.


The Order of St. George has been approved as an official Certifying Organization for the President's Volunteer Service Award.

The ability to bestow Presidential recognition to volunteers is a tremendous honor. Recognizing the great work and commitment of  volunteers can deliver a powerful message, one that encourages others to take action.
