Become A Scout Member

Scout memberships promise monthly contributions to Scout Cambridge and Somerville. They support basic operations like web hosting all the way to in-depth journalism and community profiles. They support our writers, photographers, and editors who work hard to continuously showcase our community, share  issues, and keep us all informed in print  and on the web.

In a region where so much of the media is controlled by billionaires and hedge funds, where local news is more akin to content farming and SEO hoarding than actual reporting, independent media is more important than ever. Scout stories are your stories. Scout partners are small business owners and local businesses, your businesses. 

Business partnerships are available. Appear in our business directory and communicate directly with community members by joining here.

Want to support Scout in other ways? We recognize that this is a trying time for many, financially and otherwise, and we appreciate our readership beyond the dollars they can contribute. 

If you’d like access to our Neighbor in the Know membership but feel strained by the $10 contribution, this membership is available on a sliding scale, anywhere from $0 – $10.

Please email us at for more information on how to get involved and keep Scout going.
