Boy Scouts To Accept Girls, But Not Everyone Is Happy

Local councils weigh in on Boy Scouts' admittance of girls Local scouting community reacts to Boy Scouts changes

Gulnac does not foresee any problems with bringing girls in first through fifth grades into the Cub Scouts, but he recognizes possible issues with in Boy Scout troops. Anyone who's had young children in Scouting programs knows that siblings of either gender often attend pack meetings and campouts out of necessity. "She'd make a tough Boy Scout", said Shirley, a former Girl Scout troop leader.

"It's now gonna be inclusive, the girls can now join and do what little brothers are doing", says Thomas. "Instead of addressing systemic issues of continuing sexual assault, financial mismanagement and deficient programming, BSA's senior management wants to add an accelerant to the house fire by recruiting girls". An official with the Allegheny Highlands Council said the group will adhere to the guidelines.

BSA has not responded to a request for comment about Garcia's statement. Yet, Boy Scouts has been historically slow to adapt to changing cultural mores which has hurt its standing across the nation, the release points out. "I'm not sending her out in the woods with 30 boys". The century-old program began accepting gay members and adult volunteers into their ranks recently, along with transgender boys in shifts that took entirely too long to become reality. "We see more inclusiveness of women in assuming roles that in the past were reserved for men". We are constantly looking at our programming and talking to girls. "We are not trying to replace them", Smith said.

Submitted Photo Girls Scouts Troop 20158 pictured with blankets they made for Roswell Pediatrics are: Robyn Banach, Hannah Riewaldt, Danielle Riewaldt, Kaylee Zeigler, Haileigh Pawlak and Siera Porpiglia.

The changes led to increased membership in some markets, Else said. Stone said they've been pushing for full inclusion.

It continued, "The benefit of the single-gender environment has been well-documented by educators, scholars, other girl- and youth-serving organizations, and Girl Scouts and their families". Check out Girl Scouts! One of the things that is our main focus is the leadership development for girls. "I just wish it were with the Girl Scouts". We have the archery set up at our camp. "I want my daughter to have the opportunity to camp a few times or twice a summer".

These changes aren't necessarily new for the Boy scouts as they already offer a co-ed program for those aged 14-21 known as Venturing. The focus on science, technology, engineering and math skills is vital to ensuring that girls are prepared for the marketplace, she said. "In our program there has been sister tag-alongs, they do everything but don't get the badges", Smith said.

'The New Mutants' Releases First Trailer
This looks like every horror film you've seen in the past six months, though it's got the X-Men seal of quality stamped to it. Of these four movies, New Mutants is the next to hit theaters, with an April 2018 release date.

The Boy Scouts of America embraced a historic change with its Wednesday announcement that the organization will allow girls to enroll into the Cub Scouts program next year.

More than 2.4 million young men like Skelly have achieved Eagle Scout. "Will Eagle Scout still be a great, sought-after thing?" he mused. "Girl Scouts can use on their resumes and also on their college applications".

"We believe we are in this all together and for what's best for the kids", said York. But it's not clear if any of those Girl Scouts were Gold Award recipients.

Les Callette said it's not just about the awards, however. She acknowledged the group needs to do more to build its visibility.

As for the Girl Scouts, they will continue doing what they're doing, she said.

When creating a new pack in fall 2018, a chartered organization may form an all-boy pack, an all-girl pack or a pack of boys and girls, says Boy Scouts.
