WLACC’s Values Proposition and Non-Discrimination Statement
The Western Los Angeles County Council of the Boy Scouts of America is pleased that it welcomes more than 6,000 volunteers per year who are committed to preparing our youth to make ethical and moral choices over their lifetimes.
We recognize that Scouts, our volunteers, and our employees come from all walks of life, all types of family units, faiths and racial and ethnic backgrounds. We welcome all to our program, without regard to sexual orientation or religious belief. The Council respects the rights of all people and desires that our youth and all who serve them enjoy scouting, free from divisive distractions and the politics of the day.
We welcome the broad diversity of our scouting community. Our members respect all people and defend the rights of others. Prejudice and intolerance in any form are unacceptable within the ranks of the WLACC. WLACC is committed to providing an inclusive and welcoming environment for our youth and for all members of our staff, clients, volunteers, subcontractors and vendors. We honor the principal role that parents play in instilling these values in their children, and we are proud to be their partners in inspiring our youth to achieve their goals.
Our vision is to offer our youth responsible fun and adventure; train them in citizenship, service and leadership; and to instill in them a lifetime of values that will allow them to better serve America’s communities and families. We welcome all who share that vision and who embrace and embody our core values as Scouts.
