Boy Scouts Of America To Change Name After 114 Years

By Danielle

The Boy Scouts of America announced it intends to change its name for the first time in the organization’s 114-year history.

In an effort to be more ‘inclusive,’ the organization will refer to itself as Scouting America.

Boys Scouts of America CEO Roger Krone said he hopes this sends a ‘strong message to everyone in America that they can come to this program and bring their authentic self.’

“They can be who they are and they will be welcomed here,” he added.

“Membership is at historic lows,” he noted.



“It’s a significant shift as the organization emerges from bankruptcy following a flood of sexual abuse claims and seeks to focus on inclusion,” the Associated Press stated.
