   I still believe the best program for future young student hams learning morse code is to get the local scout leader to re introduce the old merit badge that required knowing morse code and signal flag. It worked out very well for many of us.

I second that!  My Assistant Scoutmaster, back in the mid-1950s was a retired Navy Master Chief Quartermaster:  flashing light, flaghoist, and semaphore, PLUS CW.  My original troop (#88, Las Vegas NV) could have taken over a watch section on a Navy ship and run the entire system on the unclassified side.

This guy, Master Chief Howard, was my Elmer.
