I don’t know how I feel about this, but I am definitely for inclusion. According to Fox 28, girls can now officially join what used to be called the Boy Scouts. Anyone between the ages of 11 and 17 are able to become part of what’s now known as Scouts BSA.
“I find that within the scouting program, from where it was a year ago, watching the boys develop, and grow now we’re giving that opportunity to young ladies. And what’s wonderful about it is that we can give them the skills for leadership,” said Scoutmaster Kate Leaver
More than 77,000 girls have already joined Cub Scouts, a program for younger children, since it began welcoming girls last year.
The Boy Scouts of America says it will recognize its first class of female Eagle Scouts in 2020, which is the highest rank in the organization.
