Scout Motto and Slogan
A Scout is ready for any situation that emerges and is properly equipped to solve the problem, with not just tools but also his knowledge.
Baden-Powell wasn't thinking only of being ready for emergencies. His idea was that Scouts should prepare themselves to become productive citizens, strong leaders, and to bring joy to other people. He wanted each Scout to be ready in mind and body and to meet with a strong heart whatever challenges await him.
Be prepared for life -- To live happily and without regret, knowing that you have done your best. Being prepared financially is a particularly important skill you can practice by saving at least half of what you earn.
Do a Good Turn Daily
A Scout is willing to do something to help others each day without expecting anything in return. It means doing your part to care for your community and the environment.
Some Good Turns can be small, thoughtful acts -- helping a child cross a busy street, going to the store for an elderly neighbor, cutting back weeds blocking signs, or doing something special for a love one.
Some Good Turns are big -- service after a disaster, rescuing someone from a dangerous situation, recycling community trash, or completing conservation projects.
A Good Turn is more than simple good manners. It is a special act of kindness.
