Benefits of "This Is Scouting"

Assistance in implementing the full Scouting program with chartered organizations:

  1. A better understanding of the advantages of encouraging youth and adult volunteers to move through the traditional program as their youth mature
  2. An awareness of the different aspects of the Scouting program, which may result in leaders taking advantage of those programs for a child in a different age group
