The mission of this Association is to encourage and support African Methodist Episcopal (AME) congregations and their youth ministries, using the programs of the Scouts BSA and GSUSA by: (1) encouraging AME congregations to incorporate scouting into their programs of leadership training and community outreach; and (2) fostering individual religious growth of youth and adults through the religious recognition program of the AME Church.
AAMES aspires to excel as a valuable, effective, and influential organization by advancing scouting through the collaboration of religion, service, and community resources. AAMES is striving to involve more young people and adults through Girl Scouts and Boy Scouts programs that will help them develop as Christian leaders and reach other families throughout our local communities. AAMES envisions establishing a clear link between the Christian principles of the AME Church and the values and principles of Girl Scouts and Boy Scouts.
