SCOUTING WORKS

Scouting works with colleges, universities, and other research based organizations to study the impact Scouting has on youth.  These studies help us determine if we are meeting the needs of children and fulfilling our mission.

Developmental Assets

The Search Institute has identified forty building blocks of healthy development that help young people grow up healthy, caring, and responsible.

“Scouting taught me to seek out the best version of myself, to work hard for the things I want to accomplish, because anything worth doing is worth working hard for.”
