For almost one hundred years, Boy Scouts of America has helped the youth grow and reach their maximum potential by encouraging academic excellence, self-confidence and the development of leadership skills that influence their lives even into adulthood.
The scouting programs provide youthful activities that encourage exploring new ventures, helping those in need, and creating self-confidence while reinforcing fundamental ethical standards.
Scouting helps the youth to obtain a profound appreciation for community service. As individuals, they understand that their lives make a difference in the world. But what is most important is that Scouting encourages activities that lead to a sense of personal responsibility and high self esteem. This helps the youth resist peer pressure and make the right choices throughout their lives (South Florida Council Boy Scouts of America).
It began over 100 years ago with one woman, Girl Scoutsâ€™ founder Juliette Gordon â€śDaisyâ€ť Low, who believed in the power of every girl. She organized the first Girl Scout troop on March 12, 1912, in Savannah, Georgia, and every year since, we've made her vision a reality, helping girls discover their strengths, passions, and talents.
