The Scout Oath encourages all Scouts to help other people at all times. And the Scout slogan urges Scouts to do a good turn daily.
Commitment to serving others is a cornerstone of Catholic Scouting. Cub Scouts as young as kindergarten age are engaged in projects that help them learn about the value of volunteering to serve others.
As young people grow and advance through Catholic Scouting they engage in successively more in-depth projects that help foster citizenship, develop character, and build leadership skills in service of their parish, their larger community, their country and the Church.
