Our programs

What are the organization's current programs, how do they measure success, and who do the programs serve?

Cub Scouts

A family and home-centered program that develops ethical decision-making for boys and girls in the Kindergarten through fifth grades . Fourth and fifth grade (or 10-year-old) boys are called Webelos Scouts (WE'll BE LOyal Scouts) and participate in more advanced activities that begin to prepare them to become members of Scouts BSA. Cub Scouting's emphasis is on quality program at the local level, where boys and families are involved.

Population(s) Served
Children and youth

Scouts BSA is a year-round program for youth in fifth grade through high school that provides fun, adventure, learning, challenge, and responsibility to help them become the best version of themselves.

In Scouts BSA, young men and women go places, test themselves, and have one-of-a-kind adventures that can’t be found anywhere else.

For the first time in its 100+ year history, the iconic program of the Boy Scouts of America is open to young women as well as young men, all of whom will have the chance to earn Scouting’s highest rank, Eagle Scout.

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

The Scouting program has three specific objectives, commonly referred to as the "Aims of Scouting." They are character development, citizenship training, and personal fitness.

Character
One is growth in moral strength and character. We may define this as what the boy is himself; his personal qualities, his values, his outlook.

Citizenship
A second is participating citizenship. Used broadly, citizenship means the boy's relationship to others. He comes to learn obligations to other people, to the society he lives in, and to the government that presides over that society.

Fitness
A third aim of Boy Scouting is development of physical, mental, and emotional fitness. Fitness includes the body (well-tuned and healthy), the mind (able to think and solve problems), and the emotions (self-control, courage, and self-respect).
