The Istrouma Area Council, (IAC) serves 13 parishes in Louisiana and Wilkinson County, Mississippi and provides a quality Scouting program to more than 8,200 co-ed youth. More than 3,000 adult volunteers support 285 Cub Scout Packs, Boy Scout Troops and Venturing Crews.

It is the mission of the Istrouma Area Council, Boys Scouts of America, to build character, citizenship and total fitness while preparing young people to make ethical and moral choices over the course of their lifetimes by instilling in them the values of the Scout Oath and Law.

"...the final and chief test of the Scout is the doing of a good turn to somebody everyday, quietly and without boasting. This is the proof of the Scout." -The Boy Scout Handbook (1st Ed.)

Youth today face many challenges. Scouting provides youth with ways to cope with these challenges by encouraging them to help their fellow man.

For over a century, the BSA has helped build the future leaders of this country by combining educational activities and lifelong values with fun. The Boy Scouts of America believes — and, through over a century of experience, knows — that helping youth is a key to building a more conscientious, responsible, and productive society.

The Boy Scouts of America prides itself on encouraging youth to serve others. That's why the Scout slogan is "Do a Good Turn Daily." Scouts are encouraged to always be on the lookout for ways to help others and to do good deeds - or Good Turns.

“Be thankful for what you have; you'll end up having more. If you concentrate on what you don't have, you will never, ever have enough."  -Oprah Winfrey
