National Advancement Updates

Program Updates – 2014 and Beyond

The next three years promise to be exciting for Scouting as all three of our traditional programs will be updated based on several years of volunteer-led research and development. Venturing is first up in 2014 with a totally new program and recognition approach focusing on progressive development in adventure, leadership, and service to others and personal growth.

NEW! National Annual Meeting Updates

Venturing:    New Venturing award requirements have been released. Drafts of Handbook for Venturers, Venturing Advisor Guidebook, and the Venturing Awards and Requirements Book were on display and are due in Scout shops soon.

Cub Scouts:  Samplers of new youth handbooks and den leader guides unveiling five of the 84 new adventures have been released. Other items of note include PDFs about progress-toward-rank recognition insignia; Ethan, our new Cub Scout guide; a transition guide, FAQs, and more!

 

The Program Updates page of Scouting.org will always have the most recent information on what is coming and when.
