The mission of Scouting is to contribute to the education of young people, through a value system based on the Scout Promise and Law, to help build a better world where people are self-fulfilled as individuals and play a constructive role in society.
This is achieved by:• Involving them throughout their formative years in a non-formal educational process
Using a specific method that makes each individual the principal agent of his or her development as a self-reliant, supportive, responsible and committed person
Assisting them to establish a value system based upon spiritual, social and personal principles as expressed in the Promise and Law.
