The Boy Scouts of America was incorporated on February 8, 1910. We have celebrated a centennial of positive impact on American society and American young people. We are stepping boldly into our next century of service to the families of our community.
Community-based organizations receive national charters to implement the Scouting program as a part of their youth programming. These groups, which have goals compatible with those of the BSA, include school groups, churches, civic clubs, fraternal and business organizations, among others.
