The mission of the Boy Scouts of America is "To prepare young people to make ethical choices over their lifetimes by instilling in them the values of the Scout Oath and Law".  The values, embodied in the Scout Oath and Scout Law, are as relevant today as in the past, but are challenging for anyone in our society.  Scouts memorize the Oath and Law and strive to live by them with adult leaders doing the same, as role models.  Through weekly meetings, monthly activities and special training events our youth experience values based leadership, citizenship and service training.
