Mission, Vision & Impact

National Mission:

The Boy Scouts of America was incorporated to provide a program for community organizations that offers effective character, citizenship, and personal fitness training for youth. To service others by helping to instill values in young people and, in other ways, to prepare them to make ethical choices during their lifetime in achieving their full potential. The values we strive to instill are based on those found in the Scout Oath and Law.

Aloha Council Mission:

Aloha Council Boy Scouts of America delivers the promise of Scouting to youth in Hawaii on the island of Oahu, Kauai, Maui, and Hawaii, and in the US territories of American Samoa, Guam, and the Commonwealth of the Northern Mariana Islands.

The council, headquartered in Honolulu, serves these areas with offices located in Wailuku, Hilo, Guam, and American Samoa.

Aloha Council has 157 Scouting units chartered by over 80 different community groups that include civic, non-profit, religious, educational and business organizations across the Pacific region.

Our Vision

Aloha Council is recognized as the premier youth leadership organization in Hawaii and the Pacific instilling the Scout Oath and Law in youth while incorporating traditional Hawaiian values of KULEANA (responsibility), KOKUA (teamwork) and MALAMA KA AINA (respect for the land) with ALOHA.
