Journey to Excellence Program
When the Boy Scouts of America launched the new strategic plan, a transition
was made to a new program to measure unit, district, and council performance. Following
the Boy Scout's transition, the national OA committee adopted the Journey to Excellence
program to replace the National Quality Lodge program. Journey to Excellence
places emphasis on continuous improvement. Just as the Boy Scouts of America Journey
to Excellence program recognizes each level of the organization (Unit, District,
Council), the OA's program creates Journey to Excellence recognition for chapters,
lodges, and sections.
To assist in making the transition from National Quality Lodge to Journey
to Excellence, several resources are available. The resources available include
a script that lodges and sections can use for their training programs, as well as
Microsoft Word files to plan and track progress.
