    I want to start a youth club...

    What hoops do I have to jump through???

    I have noticed that sooo many kids latley are obese. It's disgusting. This is the premise behind my idea.

    I want to start a program that gets kids out doors. Sports arn't for every kid (hence the crazy obesity levels), however, I think many kids could benifit physically/emotionaly/educationally from outdoor activites such as hiking/camping (obvious legalities with the inherent "danger" of going outside). It is not only a wonderful foundation to teach kids about the natural world they live in, but a great way to make them feel good about themselves (climbing a mountain and reaching a peak has seemingly obvious positive psychological benifits). I'm CPR and First AID cert, but I don't even know where to start to make a club/program like this. Any ideas/suggestions, or should I just become a boy scout leader?

    Unless your filthy rich and can afford the insurace you will need, I would just go with being a Scout leader.

    Also, starting your own organization will be very time consuming.

    Maybe get active with the youth group at your church?

    The Second Amendment has nothing to do with hunting. It is about keeping the government in check. This requires that the citizenry is well armed and at all times has immediate access to arms.

    I'm going to say become a scout leader as well. You have a lot of freedom in the type of activities you do, and as long as you operate under their guidelines, you have a lot resources and legal protection you would not otherwise have.
