Mission Statement

The mission of the Boy Scouts of America is to prepare young people to make ethical and moral choices over their lifetimes by instilling in them the values of the Scout Oath and Law.

Description

For more than 100 years, Scouting programs have helped youth develop academic skills, self-confidence, ethics, leadership skills and citizenship skills that influence their lives through adulthood. National studies of Scouting programs indicate that Scouts with at least five years' tenure are more likely than boys who have never been Scouts to assume leadership roles in clubs or school organizations, put the needs of others before their own, have higher self-confidence, be active in a variety of after school activities, and resist peer pressure to take part in delinquent or dishonest activities. We also know that the benefits of Scouting are lifelong; 83 percent of men who were Scouts agree that the values they learned in Scouting continue to be important to them today
