Journey to Excellence

Journey to Excellence is the way a unit measures itself compared to the BSA's national guidelines for an active unit that has trained leaders, vibrant programming, and Scouts advancing through the ranks.  Although, it is not a "report card," per say, it is criteria that allows the leadership to see how well the unit is doing.

The end of the year is coming. Contact your Unit Commissioner to have them work with you to determine the unit's current JTE score, and make a plan to improve the score by the end of the year.
