Chartered Partner Organizations


The strength of the Boy Scouts of American is dependent on the organizations they partner with.  The BSA has recommend that all Units (Packs, Troops, Teams, and Crews) partner with a Brick and Mortar organization which has the same values as Scouting to help assure that the Unit is available for future generations.

Civic, Faith-Based, and Educational Organizations operate Scouting Units to deliver the programs to their youth members, as well as the community at large.  Approximately 120,000 Scouting Units are owned and operated by Chartered Organizations.  Of these Units:

66.9% are Faith-Based Organizations

24.4% are Civic Organizations

8.7% are Educational Organizations
