What are the organization's current programs, how do they measure success, and who do the programs serve?

Cub Scouts

The Boy Scouts of America has taken drastic steps in recent years to improve, streamline and make more digitally accessible programs in order to appeal to a broader range of youth, families and the interests that bring them all together. Scouting is divided into 6 youth-centered programs which all feature engaging, hands-on activities throughout the various age groups each program is designed to serve.

The Cub Scout program is our elementary aged segment which serves youth (boys and girls) from kindergarten through the fifth grade or ages 6-10 years old. Scouts BSA is the traditional Scouting experience for youth in the sixth grade through high school. Scouts BSA, serves youth (boys and girls) from grades 6 through 12 or ages 11 to 18 years old with an emphasis on physical fitness, leadership and citizenship development using the outdoors as its experiential learning classroom.

Data
  • We analyze disaggregated data and root causes of race disparities that impact the organization's programs, portfolios, and the populations served.
  • We disaggregate data to adjust programming goals to keep pace with changing needs of the communities we support.
  • We employ non-traditional ways of gathering feedback on programs and trainings, which may include interviews, roundtables, and external reviews with/by community stakeholders.
  • We disaggregate data by demographics, including race, in every policy and program measured.
  • We have long-term strategic plans and measurable goals for creating a culture such that one’s race identity has no influence on how they fare within the organization.
Policies and processes
  • We seek individuals from various race backgrounds for board and executive director/CEO positions within our organization.
  • We have community representation at the board level, either on the board itself or through a community advisory board.
  • We help senior leadership understand how to be inclusive leaders with learning approaches that emphasize reflection, iteration, and adaptability.
  • We engage everyone, from the board to staff levels of the organization, in race equity work and ensure that individuals understand their roles in creating culture such that one’s race identity has no influence on how they fare within the organization.
