Boy Scout Advancement

As a Scout advances, he is measured and he grows in confidence and self-reliance, and he builds upon his skills and abilities.The badge signifies that a young man—through participation in a series of educational activities—has provided service to others, practiced personal responsibility, and set the examples critical to the development of leadership; all the while working to live by the Scout Oath and Scout Law.
