Citizenship in Society Merit Badge

The Boy Scouts of America (BSA), one of the largest youth organizations in the United States, announced the launch of the Citizenship in Society merit badge, its newest merit badge for youth in the Scouts BSA program (ages 11-17). The new merit badge encourages Scouts to explore important topics around diversity, equity, inclusion and ethical leadership and learn why these qualities are important in society and in Scouting. Beginning July 1, 2022, the Citizenship in Society merit badge will be required for any youth seeking to achieve the prestigious Eagle Scout rank.

Network with other Scouts – no more reinventing the wheel.


BSA training teaches you what you need to be a Scout Leader. L.E.A.D. gives you the tools to be a great leader.


An excellent way to learn about new gear, techniques, and changes in BSA policies.
