As vice president of Pittsford, New York’s DGA Builders, LLC, Tony DiTucci provides oversight and leadership to the construction of multi-family and senior housing projects. A passionate supporter of local nonprofits, Tony DiTucci serves on the Eagle Scouts Review Board for the Boy Scouts of America (BSA).
Founded in 1910, the BSA has provided scouting experiences in five different programs for more than 110 million Americans since its inception. One of the BSA’s core areas of programming is sea scouting, through which members gain extensive knowledge in the United States’ maritime heritage and learn essential boating skills.
Sea Scout units, which are referred to as ships, learn to operate and maintain power vessels and sailboats with a special emphasis on safety. Other lessons focus on the importance of lights and buoys, the proper method for dropping an anchor, and how to use the tide and wind to your advantage. Moreover, ships facilitate course instruction regarding lifesaving, first aid, swimming, cardiopulmonary resuscitation, and Coast Guard Auxiliary Sailing and Seamanship. Scouts can also participate in regattas and earn internship opportunities.
