Mission The Mission of the Boy Scouts of America is to prepare young people to make ethical choices over their lifetime by instilling in them the values of the Scout Oath and Law.
Background

The Last Frontier Council was founded in Oklahoma City in 1914, four years after the founding of the Boy Scouts of America. The Last Frontier Council currently serves more than 11,000 youth in central and southwest Oklahoma, including the Oklahoma City metro, Altus, Chickasha, Clinton, Duncan, Lawton, Shawnee, Seminole, and Weatherford.

Impact

In FY 2016, over 11,867 scouts participated in the program.  There were 406 units within 267 Charter Partners. 

Over 3,000 Cub Scout ranks earned.
Over 1,300 Boy Scout ranks earned.
6,800 merit badged earned.
180 Eagle Scout Awards earned.  
Over 55,000 service hours were completed by scouts.
22,708 nights were spent camping at council events. 
Over 2,300 STEM-related merit badges were completed.   
 
Needs
  1. Volunteers to serve as mentors to Scouts and raise funds to support them.
  2. Volunteers with skills in marketing and communications to assist us in promoting Scouting through print, electronic, and social media.
  3. Contributed funds to help us support the more than 11,000 Scouts we serve. A gift of $320 supports one Scout for an entire year.
  4. Chartered Partners to sponsor Cub Scout Packs and Boy Scout Troops, providing youth with character building activities and exposure to good role models.
  5. Access to community partners that, through collaboration, can strengthen youth through Scouting and other activities to our members and the community at large.
CEO/Executive Director Statement
The Scout Oath begins with "On my honor, I will do my best...." and the Cub Scout Motto is "Do Your Best." These two key affirmations show that excellence is at the core of Scouting.

A key focus annually is the progress of our five-year strategic plan. As Lord Robert Baden-Powell put it, "Scouting is a game with a purpose." Our strategic plan ensures that, from a youth perspective, Scouting is fun, and from an adult/parent perspective, Scouting develops values like leadership and character to build the leaders of tomorrow.
 
As the Strategic Plan is implemented, we are excited about how the Last Frontier Council can support our local and neighborhood Scouting programs in making a difference in the lives of youth. 
Board Chair Statement
Our vision is to bring Scouting to more young people through collaborations with community-based chartered partner organizations. These partners are faith-based org, civic groups and schools. Through this effort we strive
to bring program features to our youth that no other organization can offer. As a result we will achieve a higher quality program that shapes character.

Programs
Description Tiger Cubs BSA

A school-year program for first-grade (or 7-year old) boys and their adult partners that stresses shared leadership, learning about the community, and family understanding. Each boy-adult team meets for family activities, and twice a month all the teams meet for Tiger Cub den activities.

Cub Scouting

A family and home-centered program that develops ethical decision-making for boys in the second through fifth grades (or who are 8, 9, and 10 years old). Fourth and fifth-grade (or 10-year-old) boys are called Webelos Scouts (WE'll BE LOyal Scouts) and participate in more advanced activities that begin to prepare them to become Boy Scouts. Cub Scouting's emphasis is on quality program at the local level, where boys and families are involved.

Boy Scouting

A program for boys 11 through 17 designed to achieve the aims of Scouting through a vigorous outdoor program and peer group leadership with the counsel of an adult Scoutmaster. (Boys also may become Boy Scouts if they have earned the Arrow of Light Award or have completed the fifth grade.)

Varsity Scouting

An active, exciting program for young men 14 through 17 built around five program fields of emphasis: advancement, high adventure, personal development, service, and special programs and events.

Venturing

A program for young men and women who are 14 (and have completed the eighth grade) through 20 years of age to provide positive experiences through exciting and meaningful activities that help youth pursue their special interests, grow, develop leadership skills, and become good citizens.

Program Long-term SuccessHelpDescription of the ultimate change(s) that will result from this program. This may be far into the future or represent an ideal state. To continue to prepare young people to make ethical choices over their lifetime by instilling in them the values of the Scout Oath and Law.
Description The council training committee’s job is to get adult leaders trained. One of the keys to the success of the Scouting program is trained volunteer leadership. Second only to the selection of the right person for each responsibility is his or her training in the purposes of Scouting, the methods through which these purposes are achieved, and the techniques of their individual job.
Strategy
Population Served Adults
Description The council camp promotion and outdoor committee provides outdoor programs that most units are unable to provide on their own, and outdoor programs are often the main reason youth join a Scout unit. From Cub Scout day camp to high-adventure programs, this committee helps make exciting outdoor programs available for Cub Scouts, Boy Scouts, and Venturers.
Strategy
Population Served K-12 (5-19 years)
Description The council activities and civic service committee’s job is to provide mountaintop experiences that dramatically capture the attention of the whole Scouting community: a Scout color guard at a city hall ceremony, a presentation of the Award of Merit to leaders at a district recognition dinner, an exciting competition of Scouting skills, or a meaningful community clean-up project. We help units make these great events happen in the lives of Cub Scouts, Boy Scouts, Varsity Scouts, Venturers, and leaders.
Strategy
Population Served K-12 (5-19 years)
Description The council advancement committee implements procedures that help achieve the BSA advancement program. The committee helps Cub Scout packs, Boy Scout troops, Varsity teams, and Venturing crews succeed in helping youth members advance in rank. If they advance, they will have a good experience and will grow in their Scouting adventure.

Disaster Programs
Description
The Last Frontier Council has no specific disaster relief program. Rather, we respond to disasters as they happen, typically working at relief shelters, assisting with delivery of supplies, and recovery efforts.
Previous Disaster ExperienceHelpOrganization's previous experience during the immediate response, recovery or rebuilding phases following a disaster.
When wild fires struck in 2012, Scouts were among the first on the scene organizing donated supplies and assisting with clean up efforts. One Eagle Scout even built hundreds of sift boxes as part of his Eagle project to assist those who had lost their homes sift through ash and debris to recover valuables.
 
When tornadoes struck Moore and Shawnee in 2013, Scouts were among the first in the affected neighborhoods deliviering supplies, clearing debris, and communicating to victims where they could go to get help. For a time, Scouts ran the largest Red Cross relief center in the state in Moore.
 
We work closely with city leaders in each community we serve so that they know they can call on Scouts to help whem the need is greatest.
Resources and/or Services Offered in Disaster
Scouts and their adult volunteers primarily provide manual labor and assistance as part of disaster relief efforts. There are limitations on what we can ask them to do, particularly the youth. But for the most part, Scouts are able to help manage and organize supplies and help with debris removal.
Comments on Programs
CEO/Executive Director/Board Comments
The current focus is to place new Scouting programs in very localized areas where service is more personal and can be delivered quickly. Having a Scouting program close to where youth live is also more convenient for the the parents and families. 
 
Neighborhoods that do not currently have a Scouting program are identified as "zero-density" or "low-density" areas and volunteers at a community-level have the goal of finding partners and developing relationships to ensure every youth who wants to be in Scouting will have a quality program to join.
