BOY SCOUTS OF AMERICA ANNOUNCES LIONS AS THE NEW PILOT PROGRAM FOR KINDERGARTEN BOYS IN SELECT COUNCILS

Lions, a new Boy Scouts of America pilot program for kindergarten boys, will begin in select Councils on a test pilot basis this fall. These select Councils will share feedback with teams of volunteers and professionals for further study.

Last August, BSA Chief Scout Executive Mike Surbaugh shared his vision for a National Membership Initiative that outlined a plan that focused on short, mid and long-term strategies to support Councils in achieving their goals.  The 2016 membership plan has four areas of emphasis to help grow membership and program: 1) Exploring Explosion, 2) Build and Adventure (Rocket into Scouting), 3) New Units and 4) Pilot Programs, like Lions.

For 2016, the Indian Nations Council has agreed to participate in the Lion Pilot Program initiative. We are excited to have been selected to participate in 2016 and hope that the feedback is positive with promising recommendations for how the program should be put into action.

For more information about the program, please visit our Lions webpage, HERE.
