After being a Scout leader for many years, I can witness the value to our society of the Boy Scouts of America. I have had many young people who are now grown and their Scouting experience has shaped their paths.

Most of them are not just about making money. Their goal in life is to make a contribution to change the world for the better. If everyone had this attitude, our world will be a much more positive place.

Changing one youth at a time is the legacy we leave. They are our legacy.
