The methods of Scouting are the ways that Scouting’s aims of developing character, citizenship, and fitness in youth are achieved. One of the methods is “advancement”.
Advancement provides a way for Scouts to be recognized for their achievements and personal growth. As they advance they develop leadership skills and acquire knowledge. They have the opportunity to exercise the Scout Oath and Law in their lives.
For detailed information on how to administer Advancement in Cub Scouting, Scouts, BSA, and Venturing consult the Guide to Advancement.
