- Since 1910, Scouting has helped mold the future leaders of this country by combining educational activities and lifelong values with fun. The Boy Scouts of America believes and, through nearly a century of experience, understands that helping youth puts us on a path toward a more conscientious, responsible, and productive society.

- The result will be achieved through the partnership of: 1) children and families, 2) strong community organizations, 3) committed, trained volunteers, and 4) districts, board and staff able to align community resources in support of Scouting.
