Membership badge of the Asociación de Scouts de Honduras

The Association of Scouts in Honduras (Asociación de Scouts de Honduras in Spanish) (ASH) is the national Scouting organization of Honduras. Scouting was founded in Honduras in 1952 and became a member of the World Organization of the Scout Movement in 1957. It has 2,809 members (as of 2002).

The program emphasis is on community service. Financial assistance from other Scout Associations has helped in the creation of a vocational training center for boys and girls who are taught woodwork, electricity, carpentry, dressmaking and other useful skills.

There are other important programs which include expanding Scouting in schools, conservation training and tree planting.

Scouts participate in community service and have been trained to assist in natural disasters.
