  1. Continuing Scouts through 2019 will be challenging. As an Eagle scout who earned 3 palms, and enjoyed (mostly) the program, I am disappointed on how many scandals have sullied the boy scouts brand as an organization of volunteers doing service for others. Scouts helped boys get out of their digital caves and into the wild. Scouts helped young men explore different careers by fulfilling merit badge requirements. Scouts helped prepare our young men for emergencies through First Aid, Emergency medicine, CPR training. Scouts helped young men learn to lead, direct, and plan activities, excursions, camps, projects, and trips when administered properly (Youth led, leader supported). I have two young sons 14 and 8 and as a family we're looking for alternate volunteer groups, youth service organizations to replace the dying BSA program right now rather than treading water through 2019. During the friends of scouting drive in Feb of this year our bishop's counselor a true blue scouting apologist replaced the 3rd hour EQ/Relief Society meetings with videos promoting a friends of scouting fundraising push. Enthusiasm was a bit muted especially from the relief society presidency. Nonetheless I am forever thankful for the service of my leaders as a young man, and have enjoyed volunteering when I can. Anyone have insight on the new YM program to roll out in the next 12 months? 2020? If you were to design a program to replace BSA what would it look like? Teancum's Special Forces? (TSF)?
