Mission

The Mission of the Boy Scouts of America (BSA) is to prepare young people to make ethical choices over their lifetime by instilling in them the values of the Scout Oath and Law.  Founded in 1910 and chartered by Congress in 1920, the Orange County Council continues to be one of the largest youth organization in the county. Although many see the Boy Scouts as a program based on camping, hiking, and fishing, truly we are an educational organization that uses these activities as a means to deliver our message of developing leadership, taking personal responsibility, ethical decision making and giving to others. Scout Law:“A Scout is trustworthy, loyal, helpful, friendly, courteous, kind, obedient, cheerful, thrifty, brave, clean, and reverent,” Scout Oath:"On my honor, I will do my best. To do my duty to God and my country and to obey the Scout Law; To help other people at all times; To keep myself physically strong, mentally awake and morally straight."

Learning for Life’s mission statement is to enable young people to become responsible individuals by teaching positive character traits, career development, leadership, and life skills so they can make ethical choices and achieve their full potential.  Exploring, a program of Learning for Life, started in 1957 at the OCBSA and was adopted nationally. Explorer posts (club-like groups) specialize in one of a variety of career areas and plan activities that offer career exploration. Each post is organized around the organizing company or firm, the skills of the adults in the group, the interests of youth and the organizations' program resources. Business, industry, governmental agencies, professional societies and other community organizations are organized by Learning for Life to operate posts focused on career exploration. In 2017, 1,140 Explorers received job training skills through 47 posts at community partner organizations and by 349 adult mentors.
