Accomplishments of the Aloha Council in 2013

The Boy Scouts of America is an organization committed to making a difference in the lives of young people. In 2013, through the efforts of more than 4,900 dedicated volunteers and the support of community and religious organizations, the Boy Scouts of America in Hawaii reached more than 13,113 youth with its program of citizenship, mental and physical fitness, and character development.  The mission of the Boy Scouts of America is to prepare young people to make ethical and moral choices over their lifetimes by instilling in them the values of the Scout Oath and Law.

We use outcomes and statistics to measure our success in the delivery of the Scouting program. But those figures provide only a glimpse of Scouting. Behind the numbers are caring adult volunteers, families, and supporters who give their time and talents to Develop Leaders for Life, one child at a time.  Perhaps our most important outcome in 2013 were 236 young men from Hawaii attained the Rank of Eagle Scout. These young men ascended to the pinnacle of Scouting through hard work, dedication, and being leaders in their respective communities.

Today’s Scouting Program continues to evolve so that it is relevant to today’s youth. From Geo-Caching to Computer Science Merit Badges Scouting mixes its valued traditions with today’s technology to deliver a program that stands the test of time.  Click here for a copy of the 2013 Aloha Council Annual Report.
