Support Scout

Scout needs you! As you know, we’re committed to keeping you up-to-date with the latest happenings in Somerville and highlighting our local community champions, but we just can’t do it alone. We’re a small staff with a tight budget and we can use every bit of support from the community. We want to be able to provide the same honest, hyper-local journalism you’ve come to love while also keeping up with fun projects like our e-newsletter–The Scout Dispatch–and our exciting collaboration with SCATV called SCOUTV.

So, what can you do to help?

Check out our Patreon page and support Scout. It doesn’t hurt that the incentives are pretty stellar.

Interested in getting your hands dirty and making Scout happen on the ground level? Volunteer with us! From tabling at events to handing out magazines, we can always use a hand. Send an email to and let us know you’re interested!
