Scouting in Primary

"In Primary through Scouting we're seeking to support boys in keeping their baptismal covenants and prepare for the Aaronic Priesthood, and ultimately we see them as righteous husbands and fathers."

"As we view our Cub Scouts, Webelos Scouts, and eleven-year-old Scouts, do we envision them as future leaders? Do we recognize their potential? Are we planting seeds in these young boys to help them seek, embrace, and enjoy leadership opportunities?...Scouting has given us clarification of what these "seeds of leadership" might be."

—Joy D. Jones, Primary general president
