Journey to Excellence
"Scouting's Journey to Excellence" is the BSA's performance recognition program designed to encourage and reward success and measure the performance of our units, districts, and councils. It is meant to encourage excellence in providing a quality program at all levels of the BSA.
All Scouting units use a 'Scorecard' throughout the year as a tool to focus in key areas of the Scouting program to ensure the best possible program for their youth. This Scorecard is then completed at the end of the year and turned in to the unit's Unit Commissioner for recognition purposes, as well as for tracking over the years.
Please review the Journey to Excellence Guide for detailed instructions and information about the Scorecards.
Recording of Service Hours:
Units should record all of their service efforts through the Service Hours website.
