The organization formerly known as Boy Scouts of America will celebrate its 109th anniversary on Feb. 8, 2019. This is a time of tremendous change for the organization, as it will now allow female members in all five of its scouting programs: Cub Scouting, Venturing, Sea Scouting, Exploring, and now the Scouts BSA Program. The organization will now be known as Scouts BSA.
Scouts BSA will continue to adhere to its mission of helping to “prepare young people to make ethical and moral choices over their lifetimes” by instilling them with key values from an early age.
These values, such as being loyal, helpful, friendly, courteous, and kind have helped generations of young Americans become successful adults. Many political leaders, businessmen, celebrities, and scientists were scouts in their early years.
