TO OUR PARENTS
Welcome to SCOUTING! We are so pleased that you have decided
to join our movement, and we look forward to working together
with your family to raise leaders of character who will shape our
future in a positive way.
Through Scouting, youth can develop strong connections and
make important contributions to their families, their community,
and society at large. We would like to congratulate you for
choosing a program with the key ingredients for helping youth
grow into competent, caring, and confident adults. Research about
highly effective programs has shown that these ingredients are:
Positive and sustained adult-youth relationships
Youth activities that build life skills
Youth participation in and leadership of valued community activities
The Scouting program significantly enhances opportunities for
personal development, including higher grades, school
engagement, self-esteem, and resilience. The program provides
a safe environment where relationships are built with caring and
competent adults, where youth are encouraged to take leadership
of their development, and where useful life skills are acquired.
