Vision in a Value based Environment

 

 

The Boy Scouts of America is the nation's foremost youth program of character development and values-based leadership training.

Scouting is a values-based program with its own code of conduct.  A boy who spends one year in a Scout troop will learn lifetime skills.  He will learn basic outdoor skills, first aid, citizenship training, leadership skills, self-reliance, and how to get along with others.  Scouting will prepare him to live a more productive and fulfilling life.
