Charting impact

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

To serve the youth of our communities and provide them with an opportunity to learn positive values from excellent adult mentors.

The Executive Board officers and their respective committees have designed a rolling long range plan that maximizes the outreach of the council to grow in membership and participation.

With more than 1000 community partnerships and over 21,000 adult volunteer leaders, we have the capacity to serve an ever growing youth population of the council territory. Our donor base remains solid and supports our core program and specialty outreach programs.

One of the largest accomplishments in the last year was paying off all past construction loans for one of the camps. This balance has been paid off, while at the same time building new structures, and raising funds for a permanent maintenance endowment for the properties.
