Our Vision Statement: The Boy Scouts of America is the nation’s foremost youth program of character development and values-based leadership training.
We, at the Cornhusker Council Boys Scouts of America in Lincoln, NE, strive every day to offer young people responsible fun and adventure. We work to instill lifetime values and develop in them ethical character as expressed in the Scout Oath and Law. We are trained to guide our youth in lessons of citizenship, leadership, and service to America’s communities and families through our values-based program.
With the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic, the Cornhusker Council has had to postpone or cancel many fundraising events and activities in 2020. This has had a devastating impact on our ability to provide support and materials for each of our 141 Scout groups within our community. We are asking you now, our community members, to support our Scouts with a donation that will directly impact the lives of each Scout member, whether new or returning, to provide an outlet of community, learning, and fun. Whether our units can gather in groups or if they must provide meetings virtually, the Cornhusker Council is ready and able to serve our youth.
Please take some time to read through each unit’s own statement of need. We’ve estimated that the cost per Scout is $365 per year. That’s only $1 per day to prepare a young Scout to make ethical choices over their lifetime by instilling in them the values of the Scout Oath and Scout Law. A Scout is trustworthy, loyal, helpful, friendly, courteous, kind, obedient, cheerful, thrifty, brave, clean, and reverent. Will you help each unit in supporting their Scouts to embody these qualities?
