Why do the Scout Programs of Adventure Scouts USA encourage our Scouts to be present and future oriented? PDF Print E-mail

The Scout Programs of Adventure Scouts USA are present and future oriented because our Scouts are not just the future, they are also a part of the present.  We appreciate our Scouts live in the present while looking toward the future with a glimpse of the past.

We understand our Scouts yearn to leave the path that lies ahead of them and to choose their own.  Our Scouts will play a role in history as heroes and heroines and in the continuing effort, to discover new frontiers and to explore the final frontiers of Space and the Ocean.  Participating in our Scout Programs take our Scouts far, although achieving their endeavors require effort on their part. The future is filled with promise. 

Changes, as they occur, will value those who act quickly when opportunities present themselves.  Mere memorization of facts and figures might be helpful.  However, the ability to anticipate and react, by combining previously acquired information and skills with new unrelated ideas, will allow those with this capability to achieve more than others.  Consequently, our Scout Programs encourage the development of this ability. 

The world is becoming a smaller place and the development of a global business community continues to occur.  We encourage our Scouts to think beyond their known horizons in an effort to ensure they are the ones creating the future. We believe in the future and support our Scouts finding strength in the present, yet bounded by the past.  We encourage our Scouts as they stride into the future, to have hope as they discover new vistas, build their lives and their future families.  It is our intention they always be proud of what they committed to when they accepted the title of  Scout in the Scout Programs of Adventure Scouts USA.  We act with care today, so in the future others will always be proud of the effort we put forth as we carry the torch from this generation to the next. 

We invite all who aspire to join the Scout Movement, to join us in the Scout Programs of Adventure Scouts USA, as we contribute to creating the future-  now.
