Arizona Boy Scouts: Scouts learn trade of metal, career opportunities

PHOENIX - A local workers union has sponsored a local Boy Scouts of America troop to teach them a new trade and help earn a new badge.

The Sheet Metal Workers Union 359 is sponsoring a troop of Boy Scouts to help them earn their metal works merit badge, as well as teach them a new trade.

The workers are also teaching students the importance of trade-skills, as well as showcasing other career opportunities without necessarily needing to go to college.

As part of the training, the Boy Scouts design bookends that they get to take home at the end of the program.
