Vision Statement

The Youth Executive Committee is an organization that brings together leaders and innovators from the fields of Boy Scouting, Venturing, Exploring, Sea Scouting, and the Order of the Arrow to demonstrate the excellence of the youth within the Patriots’ Path Council. By providing training, leadership development opportunities, and community outreach programs, the Youth Executive Committee is one of the premiere developers of principled youth leaders within the council. By working together with their peers, Youth Executive Committee members are able to develop their problem solving, public speaking, and communication skills by using their knowledge to assist and empower youth to be the best they can be.

President’s Message

The Youth Executive Committee is an organization dedicated to creating youth excellence by working with leaders and innovators within Patriots’ Path Council. To continue developing this this excellence, the vice presidents, the members, and I are dedicated to providing the highest quality of education and service to advance the aims of Scouting within the council and abroad. Since coming into this position, I have been amazed by the level of dedication and commitment each member has brought to bear. It is with this dedication to service and commitment to Scouting that has propelled the Youth Executive Committee, in only a short time, to the success that it has and will continue to be synonymous with. As I look towards the future, I believe that the Youth Executive Committee will continue to exceed my expectations and grow to be a pillar of youth representation within the council

Yours in Scouting,

Justin Strnatko


Communications Committee

What We Do: Publicize and Promote the YEC and its events

How We Do It: Council Executive Board Meeting appearances, the YEC Gram newsletter, multimedia promotional materials and this website.

Our Mission: to use new media to educate the council and public about the events, activities, and goals of the Youth Executive Committee, Patriot’s Path Council, and Scouting in general. Our job is to effectively build a clear, consistent, and recognizable image of the YEC. We will spread our message with enthusiasm, Scout spirit and professionalism. By communicating with other committees, councils, and units, we will accomplish our mission as members of the YEC.

Program Committee

The program committee is responsible for planning and carrying out day/weekend trips for YEC members. For example a scuba diving weekend or a day trip to go caving. This committee was created to give back to YEC members, who are expected to work hard in every other concentration, such as service and membership retention.

Our mission is to provide enjoyable trips for all of the YEC to participate in because of all of the hard work that they do in their committees.

Service Committee

It is the mission of the YEC Service committee to promote healthy living and physical fitness in Patriot’s Path Council, while performing service activities and helping the community as a whole.

Venturing Committee

The Venturing Committee’s goal is to promote the Venturing program within Patriots’ Path Council through training events, such as the Introduction to Leadership Skills for Crews, and program events, such as the new AdVenturee April 8 – 10, 2016. The committee is dedicated to helping new crews gain a footing and thrive in the coming years. To find out more, check out the calendar for the upcoming events!
