Organizational Culture and Vision

The Northwest Georgia Council of Boy Scouts of America hosts multiple scouting programs for youth ages 6-21. 

Their goal for the next year is to increase membership and program attendance, and their vision for long term success is to grow their community awareness, increase top-level volunteers, and to secure funding endowment. 

“Recent studies by Baylor, Harvard, and Texas Tech prove that youth that are in Scouting are better students, volunteer more, graduate from college or vocational school at a higher level, give more of their financial resources, etc. than non-Scouts.” – Boy Scouts Leadership Staff  



Scouting: Some of the various scouting programs include Cub Scouting, Scouts BSA, and Venturing.

Cub Scouts is a year-round program that offers fun activities that promote character and leadership development for youth grades 1-5.

Scouts BSA is the traditional scouting experience for youth grades 5-High School.While there is guidance from experienced leaders, Scouts take their own lead, exploring places they’ve never been as they dive into the rugged world of outdoor adventure.

Venturing is a coed program for young adults ages 13 (and have completed the 8th grade) through 20 that Venturing’s motto, “Lead the Adventure,” reminds Venturers to always pursue life in the spirit of adventure.Venturers discover a world of excitement full of heart-pounding adventure and far-off travel, while they develop a lifestyle of genuine friendship and caring for others.
