The Commissioner Service of the Boy Scouts of America is a core of dedicated volunteer Scouters whose primary purpose is to provide service and support to all units and other Scout leaders. This service and support is provided to help give the unit leader extra resources to assure that he or she is able to deliver the promise of Scouting to individual youth members.


Purposes and Goals

The Commissioner Service exists to help units provide the best possible Scouting program, which ultimately helps assure that individual Scouts have the best opportunity of developing good character traits, participating citizenship skills, and personal fitness.


Broadly stated the goals of the Commissioner Service through the execution of a successful unit service plan are to:


  • Help see that the objectives of Scouting are being carried out.

  • Assure that each unit has strong, competent unit leadership.

  • Promote regular meetings of unit committees.

  • Encourage growth in youth membership.

  • Help assure that Scouts and units take an active part in District and Council activities.

  • Foster a positive relationship between the chartered organization and its unit leaders.
