The Boy Scouts of America provides youth with programs and activities that allow them to try new things, provide service to others, build self-confidence and reinforce ethical standards.
Scouting prepares youth for responsible citizenship along with the values of faith and family. They can count on the principles learned in Scouting for the rest of their lives.
You have chosen to make an important difference in the lives of youth. With your guidance as their leader, Scouts will develop character, leadership skills, responsibility and fitness.
Scouting’s positive impact comes from the program, through other Scouts, and the Scout leaders. You learn critical life skills, a greater appreciation for the outdoors and how to get involved in the community to make a difference. Along the way, the program instills the importance of character, teamwork and leadership that will last a life time.
