  • Boys Scouts Are Set to Welcome Girls Year

Sam Snoddy has been a local scouts master for more than 50 years.

But the decision didn't impress the Girl Scout organization, which noted no new, "girl specific" programming.

The name change comes amid a new campaign slogan, "Scout Me In", that was made to emphasize the group's expansion from just boys to boys and girls.

The name change, although a very small change, is, according to Walsh, a very big deal and it should be very upsetting to see an "iconic" organization destroying itself by "bending to the whims of the PC leftist mob". We are not going anywhere.

"You know, we've had women involved in the program for a long time", says White.

Greg, a Birmingham, Ala. father who declined to give his last name, told Moneyish that his 9-year-old daughter (also a Girl Scout) is excited to join Scouts BSA; folks are just afraid of change.

Girls are already allowed to be in the cub scouts but the change will allow them to reach the highest rank, Eagle Scout.

The Panhandle chapter said it will be a natural transition for girls to enter Scouts BSA.

On Wednesday, the organization revealed its new gender inclusive campaign, "Scout Me In", which aims to welcome both boys and girls to the organization.




Surbaugh explained that single-sex units will ensure that girls will not have to compete with boys for leadership positions. For Ana, she could be part of the first inaugural class of female Eagle Scouts and is planning to join the Scouts BSA in February 2019, when the program opens for girls.

On social media, there was widespread criticism of the name change, generally suggesting it's a misguided display of political correctness that undercuts the Boy Scouts' legacy. The Future Farmers of America is co-ed.

NEW YORK (AP) - The Boy Scouts are getting a name change. "With declining membership, they need the girls or it would be called Bankrupt Scouts".

The Boy Scouts of America (BSA) ran a $45 million deficit in FY 2016, a $18 million deficit in $2015, and a almost $34 million deficit in 2013, when the BSA was in the midst of its fight over the exclusion of gay scouts.

Girl Scouts has previously criticized the decision to start accepting girls into the Boy Scouts program. The organization is expanding corporate partnerships in both those areas, and developing a Girl Scout Network Page on LinkedIn to support career advancement for former Girl Scouts. "That's why we're the best leadership development organization for girls in the world". "We want you to join!'"

This June, all Packs will have the option, at the discretion of their respective Chartered Organizations, to remain all-boy Packs, charter new all-girl Packs, or like Pack 117, become a Family Scouting Pack, to serve both boy dens and girl dens. Reasons include competition from sports leagues, a perception by some families that they are old-fashioned and busy family schedules. The overall organization will still be named the Boy Scouts of America. Two years later, it said it would allow gay scout leaders as well.

"How do you manage these strategic tensions?" she asked. Waning numbers have sent both groups scrambling to entice people to join and remain active.

"I think the Boy Scouts are effectively dead", Huckabee said. "If it's not them, it might be us".
