The NLAS has established three awards to recognize worthy adult Scouters for their outstanding service to Lutheran youth. Adult Recognition Awards are by nomination only, they are not work/study programs like the youth awards.


The Lutheran Lamb Award
The Servant of Youth Adult Recognition

Adult Mentor Award
The Lamb Award is given to Lutheran adults for their distinguished service in fostering the spiritual growth of youth through church and NLAS youth serving agency programs (Boy Scouts of America, Girl Scouts the USA, Camp Fire USA, and 4-H), and to increase the use and quality of the civic agency programs in Lutheran congregations as a part of their youth ministries.


The Servant of Youth recognition is given to acknowledge distinguished volunteer service by Lutheran adults in ministry to young people through one or more civic youth agency programs (Boy Scouts of America, Girl Scouts of the U.S.A., American Heritage Girls, Camp Fire USA, 4-H).


Given to parents who have completed the Adult Mentor Program. In this program, the parent is an active learning participant alongside the child. The parent would have lessons and projects to complete in the Mentor Workbook just like the child, and then both parent and child would work on the student curriculum together.
