Scouting relies on dedicated volunteers to promote its mission of preparing young people to make ethical and moral choices over their lifetime by instilling in them the values of the Scout Oath and Scout Law.
Through the dedication of these many volunteers, the Boy Scouts of America remains the foremost youth program of character development and values-based leadership training in America.
Journey to Excellence
Scouting is about fun with your friends and your family and learning to live in the outdoors and working together. It’s about camping, hiking, and becoming a leader. Scouting is also about experiencing a career or business first hand.
