Why Choose Scouting?
For more than 100 years, Scouting programs have instilled in youth the values. Today, these values are just as relevant in helping youth grow to their full potential. Scouting helps youth develop academic skills, self-confidence, ethics, leadership skills, and citizenship skills that influence their adult lives.
The Boy Scouts of America provides youth with programs and activities that allow them to:
TRY NEW THINGS | PROVIDE SERVICE TO OTHERS | BUILD SELF-CONFIDENCE
LEARN LEADERSHIP SKILLS | REINFORCE ETHICAL STANDARDS
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. With programs for young men and women, Scouting helps meet these six essential needs of the young people growing up in society.
MENTORING | LIFELONG LEARNIG | FAITH TRADITIONS | SERVING OTHERS
HEALTHY LIVING | BUILDING CHARECTER
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.
