Reactions mixed to Boys Scouts accepting girls

As of March, the Girl Scouts reported more than 1.5 million youth members and 749,000 adult members, down from just more than 2 million youth members and about 800,000 adult members in 2014. Well, as we saw with the integration of openly gay scout leaders, individual packs will have autonomy: They can choose whether to stay all-boy, establish two separate packs, or integrate the two packs together while making provisions for boy and girl dens. Boy Scouts of America said its values are important for both men and women. Both Jones and Osterlund told NBC Montana enrollment has been steady for Boy Scouts and Girl Scouts. Cub Scout packs (comprised of multiple dens) will have the option of being co-ed or single gender.

Starting January 2018, girls will be admitted into the Cub Scouts and in 2019 a program for older girls will allow them to earn the rank of Eagle Scout.

Why isn't there anything like the Eagle Scout Award? It's about what we convey to young women about their achievements and the context in which they pursue them - that they are less valuable, simply because they weren't designed by men.

This may have been news to the Girl Scouts, whose Brownie and Junior programs cater to girls who are about the age of Cub Scouts. Rimby's Twin Valley troop, for example, has enjoyed hiking and camping."I'm getting all the experiences that I want", said Sarah Williams, an eighth-grader at Twin Valley Middle School who's been a Girl Scout since she was 6 years old. Ninety-percent of USA female astronauts, 80 percent of US female tech leaders, 75 percent of USA female Senators, and more than half of all US female business owners are part of the Girl Scout sisterhood.

However, much as the BSA fears the onslaught of negative publicity and alienation of corporate support, the BSA's single biggest supporter is actually the Mormon church, and the BSA is running scared about how they might react to the organization's socially progressive direction.

Boys Scouts will be committed to the same, but now will do so as an organization with what Surbaugh calls "a hybrid model". Indeed, I've spent the last 15 years explaining my Girl Scout Gold Award to friends, colleagues and prospective employers as the "Girl Scout version" of the Eagle Scout rank. Our local councils offer resources as well, so you won't be in it alone. "The Boy Scouts' house is on fire", the organization wrote in a statement, according to ABC News.

The Upcoming Razer Smartphone Will Be Announced On November 1st 2017
Back in January 2017, the company had acquired Nextbit , which is mainly known for its cloud storage based Robin smartphone . It's likely the company killed off support for the Robin to be able to concentrate on its own device.

"I wasn't given any grief", explained Mollie Perrot, who was one of the first women to volunteer as a Cub Scout leader in IL in the late 1980s. Apart from garnering a heavy eye roll from the Girl Scouts, it also begged the question: What can children get from one scouting organization that they aren't already getting from the other?

"The Boy Scouts' house is on fire", Garcia wrote in the Huffington Post. At a scout meeting in a Jefferson Park church Thursday evening, she and others raised concerns that the move would change both programs, to the detriment of participants.

As Stone states: "The great volunteers and staff at Indian Waters Council look forward to supporting our families and scouters in new ways with these expanded program offerings". "And I think you have to be able to change as a program". In catering to pressure groups, the Scouts are now losing the parents who would once sought out the unique and wholesome experience of Scouting.

Mixed feelings also were expressed by the president of the National Organization for Women, Toni Van Pelt.

The study found that all Girl Scouts are equally likely to develop program outcomes, such as strong sense of self, positive values, healthy relationships and community problem solving, regardless of social class, ZIP code, ethnicity or degree of engagement in other extracurricular activities.
