Through positive peer group interaction and parental guidance, boys also learn honesty, bravery, and respect. Family involvement is an essential part of Cub Scouting, and parents are encouraged to play an active role in the program. BOY SCOUTS is an outdoor program designed to develop character, citizenship, and fitness. With the Scout Oath and Law as a guide, Scouting helps a boy ages 11-17 develop into a well-rounded young adult. Through the advancement program, a Scout can progress in rank through achievements, gaining additional knowledge and responsibilities. Earning merit badges provides opportunities for Scouts to be introduced to a lifelong hobby or a rewarding career. VENTURING is a program for young men and women ages 14-20. Venturing is one of the fastest-growing programs in the Boy Scouts of America. The purpose of Venturing is to provide experiences to help young people mature and become responsible and caring adults. Young people in Venturing learn leadership skills and participate in challenging outdoor activities.

CUB SCOUTS is a year-round program uniquely designed to meet the needs of young boys ages 7-10 and their parents. The program offers fun and challenging activities that promote character development and physical fitness. Service projects, ceremonies, games, and other activities guide boys through the core values and give them a sense of personal achievement. Through positive peer group interaction and parental guidance, boys also learn honesty, bravery, and respect. Family involvement is an essential part of Cub Scouting, and parents are encouraged to play an active role in the program. BOY SCOUTS is an outdoor program designed to develop character, citizenship, and fitness. With the Scout Oath and Law as a guide, Scouting helps a boy ages 11-17 develop into a well-rounded young adult. Through the advancement program, a Scout can progress in rank through achievements, gaining additional knowledge and responsibilities. Earning merit badges provides opportunities for Scouts to be introduced to a lifelong hobby or a rewarding career. VENTURING is a program for young men and women ages 14-20. Venturing is one of the fastest-growing programs in the Boy Scouts of America. The purpose of Venturing is to provide experiences to help young people mature and become responsible and caring adults. Young people in Venturing learn leadership skills and participate in challenging outdoor activities.

Exploring is Learning for Life's career education program for young men and women who are 14 and in the ninth grade through 20 years of age. Exploring's purpose is to provide experiences to help young people mature, and to prepare them to become responsible and caring adults. Explorers are ready to investigate the meaning of interdependence in their personal relationships and communities. Exploring is based on a unique and dynamic relationship between youth and the organizations in their communities. Local community organizations initiate an Explorer post by matching their people and program resources to the interests of young people in the community. The result is a program of activities that helps youth pursue their special interests, grow, and develop. In the Long Beach Area the following organizations sponsor Exploring Posts: Angkor Automotive/Cabrillo High School Navy JROTC/Customs and Border Protection/Lakewood High School Navy JROTC/Long Beach Poly High School Army JROTC/Long Beach Police Motor Patrol and Long Beach Firefighters Associations - Search and Rescue/Long Beach PD/Los Angeles Sheriff's Department - Avalon/Los Angeles Sheriff's Department - Lakewood/Millikan High School Surf Club/Signal Hill PD/Wilson High School Surf Club/Young Horizons Child Care
