The Extra Mile

— Points of Light Volunteer Pathway —

Inspired by the "good turn" of an unknown English Scout, W. D. Boyce brought Scouting to the United States in 1910, making it possible for millions of young Americans to benefit from its values-based education programs.
"Under his patronage and guidance, American Boy Scouting as we know it today received its impetus. From that original vision of Mr. Boyce have developed thousands of troops of clear-eyed healthy young men, representing all that is finest in American youth..." — Eulogy by James E West, Chief Scout Executive of the BSA June 14, 1929
