OUR VISION OR GUIDING INSIGHT FOR SCOUTING:

Making our country better.

OUR PROMISE TO OUR COMMUNITIES:

For people who care about what is happening to children and young adults, Scouting is the fun, exciting program that builds better young people.

OUR PURPOSE:

It is the purpose of the Yankee Clipper Council to provide the program support needed by the volunteer leaders of the various Cub Scout Packs, Boy Scout Troops, Venture Crews, Explorer Posts and Learning for Life Groups in the communities we serve in Northeast Massachusetts, the Merrimack Valley and Southeast New Hampshire.

THE FIVE KEY PURPOSES OF THE YANKEE CLIPPER COUNCIL BOY SCOUTS OF AMERICA:

  1. Leadership: Scouting's purpose is to prepare young people for a lifetime of leadership. Our nation will never outgrow the need for thoughtful, responsible leadership. The values and lessons of Scouting will never go out of style.
  2. Achievement: TheScouting experience includes learning valuable skills and achieving meaningful goals. The Boy Scouts of America promotes action – taking initiative to do things that better individuals, strengthen relationships, and support communities.
  3. Character: Through its methods and programs, Scouting helps shape and build in youth the many qualities that guide good decision-making in life. Scouting's lessons last a lifetime.
  4. Service: The commitment by adults helps build a straight road for our youth to follow into the future. Scouting helps youth of our communities find – in themselves and in the world around them – more than they thought possible.
  5. Outdoors: Learning to appreciate our world and our place in it remains essential to the Scouting experience. Youth today face many distractions. Scouting promotes active involvement in the enduring nature of the Scouting experience.
