The Boy Scouts of America is one of the nation’s largest and most prominent values-based youth development organizations. The BSA provides a program for young people that builds character, trains them in the responsibilities of participating citizenship, and develops personal fitness.
More than anything, the local Scouting program needs people who want to make an investment in the future of Scouting. An investment so that the next generation of young people can collect more food for to donate to the local food pantry in the Scouting for Food program, that more Scouts can practice good citizenship by waving the flag patriotically during the parade, that can learn the importance of living a lifestyle that challenges them to be both physically and mentally fit, and a generation of youth that will learn the great values that Scouting teaches.
