Outside influences and life experiences contribute to the values and beliefs we carry with us throughout our lives. In society today, there are many opportunities for youth to make the wrong choices or follow a leader who will lead them astray. While Scouting can't remove the obstacles in life, it teaches young people to face challenges, manage risks and overcome barriers — to grow up strong, resilient and wise. Today's youth need Scouting and Scouting needs you. Support what counts — character.
