Journey to Excellence

The Journey to Excellence is the Boy Scouts of America's program to help Packs, Troops, Crews, Ships, and Posts plan, monitor, and evaluate their performance and their ability to serve youth. 

It is meant to encourage excellence in providing a quality program at all levels of the BSA.
