The New Afrikan Scouts (NAS) is a dynamic national youth program sponsored by the Malcolm X Grassroots Movement consisting of youth (male and female) of Afrikan descent who ages range from 6-17 years old. NAS was formed to give identity, direction and purpose to our youth and to combat some of the obstacles placed in the paths of our children. By working with the NAS, we are making a sincere effort to instill discipline and an understanding of what it means to go through the stages of childhood, adolescence, and young adulthood. We are helping our youth rise to meet the challenges of being young in these times and in this place.
Our activities include basic survival techniques (both rural and urban), drilling, arts and crafts, political education and other cultural/community activities. Through their involvement in the NAS our youth will develop their sense of self-esteem, community awareness, and overall commitment to the liberation of our people. We also hope to encourage in our Scouts a love ‘supreme for our families, elders, ancestors, communities and all Afrikan people.
Our fortitude and seriousness will be greatly enhanced by the support of everyone – the parents, the community and the Black Nation. If you, your child, or someone you know are between the ages of 6 and 17, have them join the New Afrikan Scouts! By contacting us at info[at]mxgm.org.
