Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

The goal of the Miami Valley Council is to positively impact the lives of young people in our service area through implementation and delivery of a high quality Scouting program.

As part of our long-range plan, we are working to strengthen the delivery of the Scouting program through improved support and expectations of our Scouts units (The main delivery method for Scouting).

We are working to improve youth recruitment and retention in our units through our 8 point "Unit Essentials" plan that includes:
1. Recharter on-time and provide contact information for families including email addresses.
2. Have at least 10 registered youth in every unit.
3. Each unit is to conduct at least one recruitment event annually.
4. Units are to support the council by having a Friends of Scouting presentation annually.
5. Have a planned program supported in every unit supported by a unit budget.
6. Every top leader is trained for their position and all registered leaders are youth protection trained.
7. All units offer their scouts a long-term program during the summer.
8. Units participate in at least one community service project annually.

All aspects of our council operation will be evaluated to assure they are supporting one or more of these 8 areas.

Since our founding in 1916, the Miami Valley Council annually reaches the lives of more than 9,000 young people throughout the Miami Valley with the character building, citizenship and personal fitness programs of the Boy Scouts of America.

The Miami Valley Council has achieved service to more youth (Membership Growth) in 2011, 2012 and 2013 as well as improved member retention (youth staying in the program longer) during this period.
