Why Be a

SCOUT?

Current and former Scouts have always felt that Scouting has made a difference in their lives. A study by Tufts University has found that Scouting does, in fact, have a measurable, positive impact in the character development of young people.

It sought to measure the difference Scouting makes in young people’s lives as those positive changes were happening.
