We strive to provide our youth with the best possible Scouting experience, and the Journey to Excellence, or JTE program helps us to achieve that goal. The Journey to Excellence program outlined by the Boys Scouts of America, (replacing the “Quality Unit” program in 2010), helps to guide unit leaders by providing “roadmap” to a successful, quality Scouting program. Check out the scorecard that best represents your Scouting unit and keep track of your progress throughout the 2013 year.

Scorecards are submitted during the annual re-chartering process which will be discussed in detail at each monthly Roundtable!
