Advancement

The link below from Nicole Kresge is to a document that has been put together to help guide Scouts through the BSA program, especially now during COVID-19. While searching for resources, she found a leader that has made videos for many of the requirements all the way to Eagle. They seem to be very helpful in learning the material needed to rank up. She has also included some other materials found along the way. Take a look and share your thoughts with Nicole.
