Developing character, leadership, and stronger communities

The Big Idea—a collaboration between businesses, community leaders and Scouting to make a significant impact to our community that will have a long-term positive effect. It begins with Scouts across the Cornhusker Council participating in community service, camping and activities this Spring.

 


WHAT IS YOUR IDEA OF SCOUTING?

 

When you think of Scouting a picture comes to mind: camping in the great outdoors, campfires, canoeing across a lake of glass, and hiking mountain trails.

You would be correct with all of these wonderful assumptions of WHAT we do as Scouts but let us share with you WHY we do it.

 

CHARACTER DEVELOPMENT

     Scouting is the only youth program that has been scientifically proven through an outside independent research study (found here) that youth who participate in the Scouting program develop stronger character traits in six core areas, than those who did not participate.

LEADERSHIP

     The Scouting program teaches youth to lead their peers through various opportunities which teaches them the soft skills of leadership. A Baylor University Study (Eagle Scouts: Merits Beyond the Badge) shows that those who attain Scouting's highest rank enhance youth's values, ethics, decision making, relationships, and personal development.

BUILDING STRONG COMMUNITIES

     We believe youth who participate in the Scouting program make our communities stronger by their engagement in civic duties, community service projects, and school activities, which ultimately lead them to become our next generation of business leaders.
