Boy Scouts Giving in to 'Politically Correct Bedwetters — Georgia Candidate

"We have two other programs, Venturing, which is already co-ed and has been co-ed for 20 years which is for boys and girls 14 to 20, and Exploring which is a career based program".

The name of the national organization, "Boy Scouts of America", will remain the same.

Michael Williams, a Republican candidate for Georgia governor, said the Boy Scouts of America's decision to drop the word "Boy" from their name was the "latest example of culture rot". The group as a whole will remain Boy Scouts of America, but when it comes to their program, they will be dropping boy and changing it to Scouts BSA.

Chief Scout Executive Mike Surbaugh tells the New York Post, "We wanted to land on something that evokes the past but also conveys the inclusive nature of the program going forward", he said.

The Boy Scouts of America has more than 2.4 million youth participants and almost 1 million adult volunteers, according to its website.

"I joined Girl Scouts when I was about 8 years old as a Brownie, and it was through my experience in scouting that this passion [for science] grew".

In a letter to Boy Scouts of America last year, the Girl Scouts accused the organization of seeking to "upend a paradigm that has served both boys and girls so well through the years by moving forward with a plan that would result in fundamentally undercutting Girl Scouts of the U.S.". In its peak years, BSA had more than 4 million participants.

The Girl Scouts, on the other hand, feels this creates confusion.

"I remember seeing one of the women talk and thinking, 'Wow, I want to be just like her.' These experiences were some of the many ways in which Girl Scouts has shaped my outlook on the STEM fields: that a girl can do STEM, and she can do it well".

"It's the program that makes a difference for our youth, so as long as they don't alter that, we're good". It's the Boy Scouts program that is for teens ages 11 to 17 that is changing its name, and that's because as of February 2019, girls will be allowed to join in on the fun.

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

"It's basically changing with the times, if you look at the YMCA they have a lot of programs at The Y, it's just The Y now, you don't have to be young, you don't have to be male, you don't have to be a Christian to be a part of that program".

A Girl Scout for nine years, she is now a Girl Scout Senior in Troop #30949. Several months before that, the group announced it would accept and register transgender youths into its organization.

"How do you manage these strategic tensions?" she asked.

The Blue Mountain Council says it's an exciting time to be a part of the Boy Scouts of America! "We both need to increase our membership numbers".
