Boy Scouts to drop ‘boy’ from namesake program upon welcoming girls
In 2017, the Boy Scouts of America announced after 107 years that the organization would finally allow girls to join in 2018.
Now, before the historical change takes place, the BSA organization announced it’s dropping the word “boy” from its namesake program.
On Wednesday, the organization revealed its new gender inclusive campaign, “Scout Me In,” which aims to welcome both boys and girls to the organization.
While the organization will remain Boy Scouts of America, the older youth program for 11 to 17 years olds, known as “Boy Scouts,” will become “Scouts BSA” in 2019.
