According to the Girl Scouts of USA, "The Purpose of Girl Scouting is to inspire girls with the highest ideals of character, conduct, patriotism, and service that they may become happy and resourceful citizens." These values are reflected in the openning of the Girl Scout Promise, "On my honor, I will try: To serve God and my country, To help people at all times, And to live by the Girl Scout Law."

Boy Scouts (ages 11 & up)
Scouting, what is it all about? There are three aims to scouting:
- Aim I: To build character
- Aim II: To foster citizenship
- Aim III: To develop fitness
These three aims are the bedrock of the American Scouting movement they represent the long-term outcomes we want for every boy.
It is the mission of the Boy Scouts of America to serve others by helping to instill values in young people, and in other ways to prepare them to make ethical choices over their lifetime in achieving their full potential.
Unlike Cub Scouting, which many of you are familiar with, Boy Scouting is a youth-lead organization. The boys learn how to organize and lead the Troop. After training, and with supervision from the adult leaders, the boys run the show.
