Journey to Excellence

Scouting’s Journey to Excellence (JTE) is the BSA performance recognition program designed to encourage and reward success.  JTE depends on Boy Scout Volunteers to measure the performance of units, districts, and councils.  JTE criteria include activities, advancement, budget, fitness, recruiting,retention, service, and training.  JTE replaced the previously named Centennial Quality Awards Program.  Units are self-measured none, Bronze, Silver, and Gold.  The Scoresheets are due at the December Roundtable, each year.

JTE-White1Here is an optional way of measuring your Unit Progress.  This has not been approved for OCBSA, yet but it is something that can help guide our Units and help them become better.

From – Utah – National Parks Council:

And this year the Utah National Parks Council created  “LDS Versions”of the national JTE that all the LDS units are asked to use this year. Some of the criteria have been adapted and re-worded a bit  so that LDS scouters have a clearer understanding of what is expected of them. You can check out this new JTE for LDS units on the UNPC website. In fact there is also a 14 page guide to better help you understand the forms

“When performance is measured, performance improves. When performance is measured and reported, the rate of improvement accelerates” . (Thomas S. Monson – Oct 1970)
