Overview of the Boy Scout support VM
◆ What is Boy Scout?
When we hear the word Boy Scout, many people may be reminded of camping, hiking, and donation campaigns often held upon the street. Boy Scout activities are held outdoors in groups by placing value onto the proactive mindset of each member to develop independence, cooperativeness, sociality, strength, and leadership. The programs are wide in their variety, and members of each age group are participating in the corresponding activities.
This organization which started to provide educational activities for the youth starting from 1907 in U.K., has now expanded to one covering 169 countries and regions with approx. 40 million members, whereas in Japan, its activity groups accounts for approx. 2,000 across Japan, with approx. 105,000 members participating in its activities.
