For over 100 years, the Boy Scout program has instilled in youth the values found in the Scout Oath and Scout Law. Today, these values are just as relevant in helping youth grow to their full potential 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 (ages 11-18) with programs and activities that allow them to:
- Try new things.
- Provide service to others.
- Build self-confidence.
- Reinforce ethical standards.
- Nurture love for the outdoors.
- Acquire new friendships.
- Accentuate teamwork.
- Gain leadership skills.
While various activities and youth groups teach basic skills and promote teamwork, Scouting goes beyond that and encourages 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. 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.Most importantly, Scouting is a lot of fun!
