Providing a Compass for Life

Scouting provides youth with outdoor adventure and activities that allow them to

  • Try new things.
  • Provide service to others.
  • Build self-confidence.
  • Reinforce ethical standards.


Impact of Scouting

In a study conducted by Baylor University, "Merit Beyond the Badge," found that Eagle Scouts are more likely than those who have never been in Scouting to:

  • Have higher levels of planning and preparation skills, be goal-oriented, and network with others
  • Be in a leadership position at their place of employment or local community
  • Report having closer relationships with family and friends
  • Volunteer for religious and nonreligious organizations
  • Donate money to charitable groups
  • Work with others to improve their neighborhoods
