Mission Statement

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

Description

The Boy Scouts of America will prepare every eligible youth in America to become a responsible, participating citizen, and leader who is guided by the Scout Oath and Law.

Scouting helps youth develop academic skills, self-confidence, ethics, leadership skills, and citizenship skills that influence their adult lives.

Scouting provides youth with a sense that they are important as individuals. It is communicated to them that those in the Scouting family care about what happens to them, regardless of whether a game is won or lost.

Finally, and perhaps most importantly, Scouting promotes activities that lead to personal responsibility and high self-esteem. As a result, when hard decisions have to be made, peer pressure can be resisted and the right choices can be made.
