Many people do not know that the BSA is two organizations. The
traditional Boy Scout organization and a wholly owned subsidiary
called Learning for Life/Exploring. Learning for Life/Exploring has
gained some attention lately as the BSA has rolled career Exploring
groups into it.
Learning for Life/Exploring is designed to support schools and other
youth-serving organizations in their efforts toward preparing youth to
successfully handle the complexities of today's society and to enhance
their self-confidence, motivation, and self-worth. Learning for
Life/Exploring also helps youth develop social and life skills,
assists in character development, and helps them formulate positive
personal values. It prepares youth to make ethical decisions that will
help them achieve their full potential. Learning for Life/Exploring
enhances teacher capacity and increases youth learning!
