They accomplish their mission in partnership with chartered organizations and chosen, well-trained leaders, as they:
Offer young people responsible fun and adventure.
Instill in young people life values and help them develop ethical character as expressed in the Scout Oath and Law.

How Your Donation Helps
The Boy Scouts of America is one of the nation’s largest and most prominent values-based youth development organizations. The BSA provides a program for young people that builds character, trains them in the responsibilities of participating citizenship, and develops personal fitness.
For over a century, the BSA has helped build the future leaders of this country by combining educational activities and lifelong values with fun. The Boy Scouts of America believes — and, through over a century of experience, knows — that helping youth is a key to building a more conscientious, responsible, and productive society.
Boy Scouts of America, Golden Empire Council. The purpose of Boys Scouts of America, incorporated on February 8, 1910, and chartered by congress in 1916, is to provide an educational program for boys and young men to build character, to train in the responsibilities of participating citizenship, and to develop personal fitness. In short, we are building good, strong, responsible, confident young men, of good moral character. We do this through various activities including high adventure outdoor activities, camping, and through community service projects. Scouting makes a direct and positive impact on the community by teaching positive values and leadership skills to youth. Participation in the Boys Scouts of America, at any age, plays a major role in shaping lasting values and the use of these values in daily life. Those young people who have embraced the message of scouting, have and will, serve our nation well.
