Welcome! We are very proud and happy to have you as a member of our scouting family. The Allegheny Highlands Council, Boy Scouts of America, is our Council. Together we can accomplish a lot for our scouts! Please use this calendar of activities, training and round tables to enhance your unit’s program for the year, and give your youth the kind of Scouting they deserve - top notch!
Our Council serves the youth of Chautauqua, Cattaraugus, and Allegany counties in New York, and McKean and Potter counties in Pennsylvania.
We have many charter partner organizations who have joined us in partnership to provide scouting programs to the youth of our communities. These sponsors include churches of every denomination; PTA’s; civic, service, & fraternal organizations; businesses & industry; & community groups. Our chartered partners provide meeting facilities, are responsible for volunteer leadership and the overall support of their Pack, Troop, Crew, or Post.
The mission of the Council is to provide opportunities for Scouting to all youths in the counties we serve and to service and support all units, and their volunteer leaders. The Council is made up of all the chartered organizations and their volunteer scouters. Each sponsor appoints a Chartered Organization Representative who is a voting member of the Council and an automatic member of their respective District Committee.
COUNCIL BUDGET AND FINANCES
The Council operates on a modest budget prepared by key council volunteers and the Council Scout Executive. The Council Treasurer, Scout Executive, Finance Committee, and Accounting Specialist monitor income and expenses of the Council.
"On my honor I will do my best to do my duty to God and my country and to obey the Scout Law; To help other people at all times; To keep myself physically strong, mentally awake, and morally straight."
The Boy Scouts of America will prepare every eligible youth in America to become a responsible, participating citizen and leader who is guided by the Scout Oath and Law.
