When W. D. Boyce was visiting London, he encountered a boy that helped him find his destination.

Since its foundation, The Boy Scouts of America has become one of the largest Scouting organizations in the United States. Around 110 million people have been participants at some time in their life. The BSA was established to help young people make better choices in life and showing selflessness by serving the community.
