Journey to Excellence

A Boy Scout is taught to always “Do Your Best” and the Boy Scout Program encourages personal growth. As a Council, we believe that we should set the example by constantly striving to improve the council.

The BSA National Council has provided a measuring tool that provides guidance for our improvement called Journey To Excellence (“JTE”). All 295 Councils in the Boy Scouts of America are evaluated monthly in 18 criteria and may be classified as gold, silver, bronze or below standard in each of the 18 criteria as well as an overall council score.

We will provide a periodic update here as to our progress towards becoming one of the best small councils in the Boy Scouts of America. Please choose the Journey to Excellence page to see a detailed discussion of where we are in each category.
