"Scouting's Journey to Excellence" is the BSA's council performance recognition program designed to encourage and reward success and measure the performance of our units, districts, and councils. It is meant to encourage excellence in providing a quality program at all levels of the BSA. JTE is also part of your unit's rechartering process. Don't wait for the year to be over before looking at these sheets. Use them to assist you in a quality program! New unit scorecards for the 2016 JTE year are now available.

'Right AND Easy' ... because every Scout deserves a trained leader.
“There will be a time when we must choose between what is right and what is easy.” -- Albus Dumbledore, Hogwarts Headmaster - Harry Potter And The Goblet Of Fire
There’s no need for Scouters to choose between training that is right and what is easy…

Watch your unit’s Roundtable mailbox for more information. / To volunteer to help, contact Joyce Nielsen, Training Academy Chair, at 630.904.4365.
