Program Objectives:

To build character and to develop good citizenship, to nurture talent and to promote good physical and mental fitness. To teach love and respect for God, church, and the Black community. To help our boys become strong men. In the recent past the previous sentence referred to help our black boys become black men. For the past two or three years our troop and pack has been interracial. We now attract boys who are interested in leaving scouting skills, being disciplined and development a sense of responsibility to community, family and country.

Each year the troop will offer lessons in God and Country which will lead to the medal and the certificate for each school level.
  • All of our boys will be encouraged to strive to achieve one step of advancement per year toward Eagle Scout, the highest rank in Scouting.
  • All of our boys will have the opportunity to attend Boy Scout summer camp and to earn at least four merit badges per Scout.
  • Teach boys the true meaning of responsible evangelism, the seven steps to salvation, scout craft skills and leadership skills while advancing through the ranks of Scouting.
