Our Place in the Movement

We inspire and challenge others to do justice and help others compassionately. Our Scout Programs believe in helping others to help themselves. Our Scouts are united by their participation in the Scout Movement, their shared interests, and a desire to do well academically. Our Scouts' mutual interest in service to the greater community and helping others is a shared fundamental belief of the Scout Movement, as well as a desire for FUN, adventurous programs. Their solidarity helps them to be an instrument of purpose. Our Scout's choosing to live a life of purpose enables them to commit from their heart, all that they do. Consequently, they can always Give their Best.
