The mission of the Boston Minuteman Council, Boy Scouts of America is to provide character development, citizenship training, growth in physical and mental fitness, and leadership opportunities for the young people of the Boston metropolitan area. We pride ourselves on the diversity of our members, and we are committed to providing young people with an educational and stimulating environment in which to learn and grow. Through the Scout Oath and Law, we pledge to respect all people and to defend the rights of others. Bias, intolerance and unlawful discrimination are unacceptable within the ranks of the Boston Minuteman Council.

Are You a Troop 119 Eagle?
We are trying to reconstruct some of the history of Troop 119, which goes back to the late 1930's. If you earned your Eagle while registered to Troop 119 (or Troop 19 as it was known in the early days), we'd love to hear from you. Contact Mrs. Shevrin (gshevrin at gmail dot com)

Help Wanted
The goal in Troop 119 is to have every family involved in helping out at some level.  Please contact the Scoutmaster or any Committee member to find out what opportunities exist.
