Golden Empire Council - Boy Scouts of America
Our mission is to instill values in young people and prepare them to make ethical choices during their lifetimes, to take leadership roles as adults, and to reach their full potential. Those values are based on character, citizenship, personal fitness, and are found in the Scout Oath and Law. We accomplish our mission in partnership with chartered organizations and chosen, well-trained leaders, as we:
- Offer young people responsible fun and adventure.
- Instill in young people life values and help them develop ethical character as expressed in the Scout Oath and Law.
- Train young people in citizenship, service, and leadership.
- Serve America's communities and families with quality values.
