The Boy Scouts of America terms "council" or "local council" mean the council where a Scout is registered.

Each Scout Unit is supported by a BSA local council, a nonprofit corporation whose voting membership may include active members at large and the chartered organization representatives of the units it serves. The council does not provide service directly to individual boys. Rather, it offers a program to chartered organizations that operate Scout Units, providing a number of common resources for all units in a specific geographic area. In some areas, councils divide their territory into districts, which provide direct-to-unit service to a smaller number of units.

Your local council and its districts support your Unit by:

  • Providing a support team of volunteer commissioners and professional Scouters to see that Units get the advice and help they need for Unit operation
  • Making council facilities and camps available
  • Making program materials, literature, planning tools, and other program aids available
  • Providing, through the local council service center, all required badges and insignia that Units can purchase
  • Raising funds for the operation of the Scouting program
  • Keeping records of Unit leaders' training and Unit members' advancement
  • Working with the chartered organizations to offer Scouting to the greatest possible number of youth and families
  • Providing training opportunities for Cub Scout leaders, including Basic Leader Training, Youth Protection training, roundtables, and other supplemental training opportunities
  • Providing information on and help with membership and recruiting programs
  • Providing large council activities to enhance the unit program* Providing local Scouting distributors that stock uniforms, equipment, literature, and other materials for purchase by Units and Scout families
  • Providing recognition and awards for leaders
  • Informing Units of new resources, program materials, and policies developed by the National Council
  • Representing the interests of units in the council's area by selecting representatives to serve as voting members of the National Council
Local Council

About 300 local councils are chartered by the National Council. The National Council is the corporate membership chartered by the United States Congress to operate the program of the Boy Scouts of America.
