Boys Scouts Are Set to Welcome Girls Next Year

During the annual "Scouts Plan An Ideal Year" meeting held at the National Guard Armory, leaders announced the implementation of a new program to involve teenage girls.

"We're proud to introduce scout me in, the new campaign that invites all kids and families in America to be part of the life-changing experience that is scouting". I think this move will be a disaster and I expect the next regime in an attempt to clean up the mess will change it back with a massive ad campaign that may be too late.

Boy Scouts of America will drop "Boy" from its main program name, in an effort to be more inclusive.

Chief Scout Executive Mike Surbaugh said many possibilities were considered during lengthy and "incredibly fun" deliberations before the new name was chosen.

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

The organization also tweeted: "Fact: Girl Scouts works". Pictured, Sergio Ruelas from Denver, Colorado shows off his badges while his younger brother Carlos looks on.EuropaNewswire/Gado/Getty ImagesChanging TideIn 2013, the Boy Scouts ended a longtime ban on openly gay members.

Not only is the name of the program changing, it will now be open to girls.

"However, some residents say they don't think the name change is a good idea".

Surbaugh explained that single-sex units will ensure that girls will not have to compete with boys for leadership positions.

"With declining membership, they need the girls or it would be called Bankrupt Scouts", Gu tweeted. Several months before that, the group announced it would accept and register transgender youths into its organization.

So far, 3,000 girls have already enrolled in the Cub Scouts. The century-old association said that it would begin inviting more established young ladies, opening an entryway for them to acquire the association's most noteworthy rank of Eagle Scout.

"We see ourselves as a family organization, and we've been excluding just one part of the family, and this gives us an opportunity to reach the entire family", said Abbott.

The new name was meant to be a welcoming sign to girls who will start joining the program next year.

They don't endorse any one political party, but they are showing their support for girls.

This change will coincide with the timeline set for girls to join that program in all-girl Troops. The Girl Scouts still feels as if it offers girls the best opportunity.

Girl Scouts is the premier leadership development organization for girls.

The tension between the organizations has been growing.

Girl Scouts CEO Sylvia Acevedo responded to name-change announcement in an emailed statement to Business Insider.

"The Boy Scouts' house is on fire".

After deciding to welcome girls, the Boy Scouts will simply be known as Scouts BSA from this day forward.

Local Girl Scout groups are calling attention to their offerings. Now they can be Cub Scouts too, and earn the same ranks, adventures, and awards as their brothers.

Bohn and Williams believe that their organizations provide great character- developing programs.
