Northern New Jersey Council, Boy Scouts of AmericaThe Boy Scouts of America was incorporated to provide a program for community organizations that offers effective character, citizenship, and personal fitness training for youth. Specifically, the BSA endeavors to develop American citizens who are physically, mentally, and emotionally fit; have a high degree of self-reliance as evidenced in such qualities as initiative, courage, and resourcefulness; have personal values based on religious concepts; have the desire and skills to help others; understand the principles of the American social, economic, and governmental systems; are knowledgeable about and take pride in their American heritage and understand our nation's role in the world; have a keen respect for the basic rights of all people; and are prepared to participate in and give leadership to American society.

The Giving Campaign plays a vital role in our annual Friends of Scouting program because we see, on an ongoing basis, how important the Scouting program is in the lives of their Scouts. Each year, the Northern New Jersey council empowers nearly 400 units deliver the Scouting program to over 14,000 youth. Serving those youth requires a budget designed to support a lot of great Scouting. Participation in the Friends of Scouting campaign will help ensure that funding will be available to meet the annual budget needs to support programs, communications, council staff, camps, office facilities and much more. Families and interested community members are encouraged to give based on their interest in the program and their ability to give. Help keep Scouting strong by participating as a Friend of Scouting!
