Mark Hancock is the CEO of Trail Life USA, a scouting program for boys with a Christian focus. He talks about the need for boys to develop a healthy sense of self. Inspired by risk and competition, boys need lots of physical activity to engage the brain, something Trail Life USA is trying to instill with plenty of boy-focused outdoor activities.
