Scouting aims to improve youth, their family, community, state and nation – one Scout at a time. Children who are successful in early school years are successful in middle and high school years. Scouting “Provides quality out-of school opportunities that reinforce and enhance social and emotional learning.”
Some of the outcomes are:
- Scouts gain social competencies skills.
- Scouts gain a commitment to learning.
- Scouts are successful in school.
The Search Institute’s 40 Developmental Assets for youth applies to Scouting in strong fashion. Under the external assets category of Constructive Use of Time, Scouts are involved in creative activities, youth programs, the religious community and time at home. Under the internal assets category of Social Competencies, Scouts learn planning and decision making, interpersonal competence, cultural competence, resistance skills and peaceful conflict resolution. By supporting these Search Institute building blocks of healthy development, Scouting helps youth grow up healthy, caring and responsible – in Scouting terminology, that is personal fitness, good citizenship and character.
