Scouting provides youth with an opportunity to try new things, provide service to others, build self-confidence, and reinforce ethical standards. These opportunities not only help them when they are young, but also carry forward into their adult lives by improving their relationships, their work lives, their family lives, and the values by which they live.
A previous Harris Interactive study found that 83 percent of men who were Scouts in their youth agree that the values they learned in Scouting continue to impact their decisions and are important to them today.
