Here is a quick overview of Scouting
For more than 100 years, Scouting has instilled in youth the values found in the Scout Oath and Scout Law. These values are just as relevant in helping youth grow to their full potential today as they were in 1910. 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.
Reinforce ethical standards.
While various activities and youth groups teach basic skills and promote teamwork, Scouting goes beyond that, encouraging youth to achieve a deeper appreciation for service to others in their community. Scouting provides youth with a sense that they are important as individuals. They learn that those in the Scouting family care about what happens to them, regardless of whether a game is won or lost. Perhaps most importantly, Scouting promotes activities that lead to personal responsibility and high self-esteem. As a result, when a Scout has to make a hard decision, he can resist peer pressure and make the right choice.
Becoming a Leader
Cub Scouting relies on volunteers to be pack leaders. Volunteers come from all backgrounds and experiences. Plumbers, lawyers, homemakers, teachers, doctors, janitors, and scientists—people from just about every occupation imaginable—are involved in leading youth to become responsible, caring, and competent citizens. They also quickly discover that Scout volunteering lets them learn new skills and build lifelong friendships while having fun.
