Lord Robert Baden-Powell founded the Scouting organization in Great Britain in 1908 as an outdoor youth development initiative.
In 1910, the United States government formally established the Boy Scouts of America.
In the United States, the Boy Scouts of America is an enormous Scouting body and one of the most prominent youth groups.
They have over 2.4 million youth members and about one million adult volunteers.
Paul Harris, a BSA representative and member of the Mobile Area Chamber of Commerce helped bring the BSA to the area ten years later.
Involvement in various outdoor and educational programs and career-oriented opportunities with community groups is the BSA’s primary purpose in training young people to be good citizens and establish their sense of self-reliance.
They aim to prepare the youth to pursue moral and ethical actions for the rest of their lives by reinforcing the Scout Law and the Scout Oath principles.
Additionally, the Boy Scouts Association aims to help Scouts keep their promises to God, the nation, neighbors, and themselves.
Mobile, Baldwin, Clarke, and Washington Counties’ youth have benefited from the efforts of the Mobile Area Council over the years.
Their goal is to motivate Scouters to serve and self-discipline by partnering with schools, churches, community organizations, and entrepreneurs in the area.
The organization is always open for volunteers to remain functional and spread the leadership of Scouting.
You can easily donate to the council using their QR code.
As part of their 2022 activities, you can expect the Golden Eagle Event, Jag Merit Badge Jubilee, Annual Sporting Clays Event, and Corporate Classic Golf Tournament.
You can get involved in these events by contacting them at 251-476-4600, their website, or you can find their office at 2587 Government Boulevard Mobile, AL, 36606.
