Mission Statement: Northern Star Council leads youth to be healthy, contributing citizens and leaders in their families, communities and the world. Working Vision: Northern Star Council will be recognized as a positive influence in the lives of 100% of the youth in the communities we serve.
Northern Star Scouting supports more than 11,700 volunteers who develop and enrich the lives of more than 31,600 boys and girls, ages 5 through 20, over the course of a year. The council provides volunteers a wide range of youth and adult training opportunities, including online courses, training videos, and district and council events.
Our membership is comprised of youth and adults representing all racial, ethnic, religious, and socioeconomic backgrounds, physical and mental abilities, and educational experiences.
Partnerships: More than 640 community organizations, representing educational, religious, non-profit, civic, and business organizations joined in partnership with Northern Star Scouting in 2018 by chartering 934 Scouting units (including 391 Cub packs, 369 Boy Scout troops, 86 Venture crews, 1 ship, and 87 Explorer posts).
