About Boy Scouts
The mission of the Boy Scouts of America is to prepare young people to make ethical and moral choices over their lifetimes by instilling in them the values of the Scout Oath and Law. A scout is trustworthy, loyal, helpful, friendly, courteous, kind, obedient, cheerful, thrifty, brave, clean and reverent.
Boy Scouts also teaches character education in the schools through Learning for Life. They also host co-ed Exploring posts, where youth gain exposure to potential careers in aviation, medicine, law and law enforcement.
