Duties of Boy Scout



Leadership has been defined and described in some ways. A pacesetter is often described as an individual who can influence others to accomplish a goal or objective, leading to a more straightforward corporation. A number of the required attributes of a pacesetter are beliefs, values, ethics, trustworthiness, character, knowledge, and skills. While it is going to seem that some people are natural leaders, it has been shown that the majority of people refer to become leaders and take the required training to develop leadership skills.

The Scouting program begins that exercise early within Scout'sScout's involvement by immersing him in a corporation that stresses, leadership and therefore, the importance of being an honest follower. A real follower may be one that cheerfully does quite is asked for or expected by his leaders. The type of Scout who when asked to look for firewood agrees on the spot without moaning. Other Scouts seeing this Scout'sScout's willingness to try to quite his share see a possible leader for the patrol. My experience indicates that Scouts, or former Scouts, are more willing to volunteer for projects that serve the general public, their church, and the community. It is this sort of follower who will ultimately rise to leadership positions because service may be a part of his character.


The values of Scouting are contained within the Scout Oath, Scout Law, Scout Motto, Scout Slogan, and therefore the Pledge of Allegiance. The Scout Oath is: On my honour, I will be able to do my best; To do my duty to God and my country and to obey the Scout Law; To help people in the least times; To keep myself physically healthy, mentally awake, and morally straight.
The Scout Oath and Scout Law, alongside the Pledge of Allegiance, are recited at the start and end of each meeting to remind the boys of what it means to be a Boy Scout. Once they appear before a Board of Review, the boys are generally asked what the Oath and Law mean to them. Scouting values, as expressed by the Oath and Law, arena are not just window dressing but an integral part of the program and are repeated frequently to remind the boys of their obligation as Scouts.
