Journey to Excellence
Prepared to do a Good Turn Scouting's "Journey to Excellence" is the BSA's new council performance recognition program designed to encourage and reward success and measure the performance of our units, districts, and councils. It is replacing the Centennial Quality Awards Program as a means of encouraging excellence in providing a quality program at all levels of the BSA. The Boy Scouts have collaborated with The Salvation Army, Habitat for Humanity, the American Red Cross and thousands of other community organizations, focusing the power of volunteerism on community issues.
