Advancement and Awards

Boy Scouting provides a series of surmountable obstacles and steps in overcoming them through the advancement method. The Boy Scout plans his advancement and progresses at his own pace as he meets each challenge. The Boy Scout is rewarded for each achievement, which helps him gain self-confidence. The steps in the advancement system help a Boy Scout grow in self-reliance and in the ability to help others.

For the most up-to-date information on Advancement and Awards, please refer to the National Council website. Follow this link for the latest information on the 12th Edition Boy Scout Handbook.
