What is Scouting

The Boy Scouts of America is one of the nation’s largest and most prominent values-based youth development organizations, providing programs for young people that build character, trains them in the responsibilities of participating citizenship and develops personal fitness. For more than 100 years, Boy Scouts of America has helped build future leaders by combining educational activities and lifelong values with fun.

Vision and Mission Statement
Mission Statement

The mission of the Golden Spread Council is to serve today’s youth and aid them in their endeavors to be prepared to face the challenges and opportunities of life, by instilling values through Scouting that will last for a lifetime. Our purpose is to provide strong, values-based programs that strengthen character, develop good citizenship, and enhance both mental and physical fitness. Our objective is to accomplish the mission of the BSA and provide Scouting values to the maximum number of youth in every community we serve.

Vision Statement

The vision of the Golden Spread Council is to be the foremost youth program of character development and values-based leadership training in the Panhandles of Texas and Oklahoma.
The Golden Spread Council will continue in the future to:

  • Deliver values-based programs of the highest quality to the greatest number of youth in our service area
  • Emphasize the aims of Scouting: building character, participating citizenship, and the development of physical, mental and emotional fitness
  • Offer our young people challenging fun and adventure that helps them reach their potential
  • Positively impact our local communities by recruiting and equipping deeply involved charter organizations and adult leaders who build values, skills, and leadership in our youth
  • Provide superior and safe facilities where our programs can be delivered consistent with the methods of Scouting
  • Ensure the financial development of the council that will best carry out our mission and vision and to provide for the future.

Youth Protection Training

The Boy Scouts of America places the greatest importance on creating the most secure environment possible for our youth members. To maintain such an environment, the BSA developed numerous procedural and leadership selection policies and provides parents and leaders with resources for the Cub Scout, Boy Scout, and Venturing programs.

The Boy Scouts of America takes great pride in the quality of our adult leadership. Being a leader in the BSA is a privilege, not a right. The quality of the program and the safety of our youth members call for high-quality adult leaders.

We work closely with our chartered organizations to help recruit the best possible leaders for their units.

Required Training
Youth Protection Training is required for all BSA registered volunteers. Youth Protection Training must be taken every two years. If a volunteer’s Youth Protection Training record is not current at the time of recharter, the volunteer will not be reregistered.
