The Mission of the Boy Scouts of America is to prepare young people to make ethical and moral decisions throughout their lifetimes by instilling in them the values of the Scout Oath and Law.
2013 Investment in Character
By making an Investment in Character, you are assuring prosperous outcomes for an entire generation, serving the future of our communities, our economy and our nation. In a world where reality and perception are increasingly defined through media and technology, Scouting inspires and engages youth to take charge of their own lives, providing real, hand-on experience.
When you give a gift to Centennial District's Investment in Character Campaign you help us make a difference in the life of a young person.

Unit Leaders - New Web Feature To Attract Potential Scouts To Your Unit
BSA has developed a new web feature called "Be A Scout". It uses Google Maps to help parents of potential new Cubs, Boy Scouts, Venture, and Explorer members to find your unit. With this feature, a parent or potential Scout enters their address and it shows the units near them and information about those units.
To make this work, you need to enter the information about your unit that you wish to present. You may enter special information about your unit, meeting times and address, leader's names, phone numbers, addresses, and e-mail addresses, and other information you wish to show potential new members. You only need to present the information you wish to. Only unit leaders (Cubmaster, Scoutmaster, Crew Advisors, Chartered Organization Rep, or Committee Chairman) may enter the information for your unit. Make your unit's information special to attract new Scouts.
See instructions to manage your unit's information. For any questions or technical concerns with this feature, contact the National Service Help Desk at 972.580.2267.
