A Lifetime of Values

A recent study conducted by Louis Harris & Associates concluded that Scouting has a positive impact on values and achievements.
  • 84% of men who were Scouts believe the values learned in Scouting continue to be very important to them
  • 45% of men who were Scouts for five or more years are college graduates, compared to only 16% of men who were never Scouts.
  • 75% of inductees into Who's Who in America were once Scouts.

Scouts that were polled indicated that Scouting has taught them to:

89% Take better care of the environment

87% Set goals for themselves
86% Care for other people
