Boy Scouts Of The Philippines
The Boy Scouts of the Philippines (BSP) is the national Scout organization of the Philippines. Its mission is to imbue in the youth the love of God, country, and fellow men; to train young people to become responsible leaders; and to contribute in nation-building.
The BSP was chartered under Commonwealth of the Philippines Act No. 111 on October 31, 1936. Its predecessor was the Philippine Council chartered by the Boy Scouts of America in 1923 through the work of American, Chinese, and Filipino businessmen and interest groups.
Scouting in the Philippines became official in 1923 with the establishment of the Philippine Council of the Boy Scouts of America. The Philippines became an independent Scouting nation in 1938, with the handover of assets and duties of the BSA Philippine Council to the Boy Scouts of the Philippines. In 1940, the Girl Scouts of the Philippines was founded. In 1959, the 10th World Scout Jamboree was held in Mount Makiling, Los Baños, Laguna, the first world Scout jamboree held in Asia.
The current National President of the BSP is Vice President of the Philippines Jejomar Cabauatan Binay and its Secretary-General is José Rizal Cuba Pangilinan.
