Girl Scouts of Central Texas respond to BSA letting in girls

13 Октября 2017

Reyes dismissed the move as "a marketing ploy that will eventually fail as more families stay away from both organizations". "I just don't know how many girls would want to be part of Boy Scouts either", Ferguson said. But the Girl Scouts of the U.S. have opposed the plan, saying the move was put into place because of financial problems.

"We believe strongly in the importance of the all-girl, girl-led and girl-friendly environment that Girl Scouts provides", the GSUSA said.

But will the inclusion of girls accelerate defections from the Boy Scouts, in the same way that ending the gay bans led to Mormon-LDS/evangelist defections?

She argues their research shows single-gender programs work best for girls, "Single-gender activities in leadership development are more successful and more meaningful for girls from the feedback we've gotten from them that they want to remain in a single-gender environment" said Hamilton. I think it would be something along the lines of girls and football right now where you see one or two.

Hallberg said membership in youth organizations are spread thin, for a lot of organizations. The organization did say that it's working on a new program for older girls.

The Girl Scouts have their famed cookies, while Boy Scout troops have no national fundraising item.

An announcement by the Boy Scouts of America on Wednesday that they were expanding their Cub Scout and Boy Scout programs to include girls starting in 2018, didn't really shock Lolis Garcia-Baab. The changes mark a sharp reversal from the BSA's hard-fought 2000 U.S. Supreme Court victory to exclude homosexuals from Scouting. The empowerment of girls is at the core of its mission. Many Boy Scout troops participate in camping expeditions, but they also have Adventure Bases, which are four locations that offer high-intensity programs.

The Boy Scouts of America (BSA) announced the move this week. And if PACs do enroll girls, boys and girls would still be separated by gender.

I was both a Cub Scout and a Boy Scout.

Girl Scouts USA (GSUSA), which allows individual troops flexibility in accepting transgender girls, rebuked BSA for the latest change.

It's unclear if boys will now be allowed to join the Girl Scouts, but that can't be too far off. When I was asked at my Eagle board of review about my reverence, I explained that while I'm not a religious person, I always viewed personal reverence - one of the 12 points of the Scout Law - as being respectful of others and their own beliefs.
