7 Basis for Program Review

Basis for Program Review

Dynamic and Relevant Program

The BSAs programs match what todays youth both want and need.

We have changed our programs to reflect the results of a thorough program review and assessment that clearly identifies those elements that are appealing, exciting and culturally relevant to todays youth and families.

9 Program Analysis

Program Analysis

Many advancement requirements support passive rather than active behavior. Leader aids are insufficient in guiding leaders on how to fulfill aims - lack tools and resources to implement aims. Youth handbooks lack: Breadth Frequency of activities Learning situations that support the aims

10 Program Analysis

Program Analysis

Character Development: Cub Scout program structure does not facilitate adequate coverage of all 12 Core Values The youth handbook activities do little to facilitate the discussions necessary to leverage the methods and instill values.

11 Program Analysis

Program Analysis

Citizenship: Current activities focus primarily in the area of civics/government with less emphasis on service and stewardship. Personal Fitness: Rank advancement activities do not build foundation for life-long positive fitness habits. Our attention to nutrition within rank advancement is not proportionate to the need to address nutrition instruction and practices.

Webelos before Arrow of Light: When joining in the 5th grade year, a boy is no longer required to earn Webelos first before earning Arrow of Light. Relieves burden on unit leader to deliver two tracks of program Keeps the boy engaged with his peers greater likelihood to stay in the program Bobcat is still required

20 Academic & Sports Program Retired

Academic & Sports Program Retired

Retirement of the Academic & Sports Program: The Academic & Sports program has been retired, but many of the fun activities have been retained and woven into the new adventures. Many of them didnt support the mission and aims of the program Layers built up over time DID take the fun activities that supported the program and carried them over as appropriate within the new adventures
