In the next 100 years, Scouting is taking the initiative to a new level — from stewardship to sustainability, and from “leave no trace” to leaving the world a better place.

With communities and state laws interpreting gender identity differently, BSA felt the practice of determining eligibility based on an individual’s birth certificate — which they have done for more than a century — was no longer sufficient.
