Program Information:Program Information:
The Boy Scouts of America celebrated its centennial anniversary on February 8, 2010. The largest youth organization in the United States, it has 2.8 million youth members and 1.1 million adult leaders in the programs of Cub Scouting, Boy Scouting, and Venturing. Since 1910, more than 111 million people have participated in the organization’s traditional programs. The organization was granted a federal charter in 1916 by an Act of Congress signed into law by President Woodrow Wilson.
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.” Every day across our Nation, Scouts and their leaders pledge to live up to the promise in the Scout Oath – “On my honor I will do my best, to do my duty to God and my country and to obey the Scout Law; to help other people at all times, to keep myself physically strong, mentally awake, and morally straight” – and the Scout Law, according to which a Scout is “Trustworthy, Loyal, Helpful, Friendly, Courteous, Kind, Obedient, Cheerful, Thrifty, Brave, Clean, and Reverent.”
Annually, Scouts and their leaders volunteer over 35 million hours of service to their communities through more than 75,000 service projects, meeting a wide range of needs in the areas of food, shelter, education and environmental conservation.
Members, leaders, and alumni of the Boy Scouts of America are preparing for the organization’s next century of service with a 100th Anniversary Celebration.
