Possible conflict between Boy and Girl Scouts

Eagle Scout Nigel Bailey of Troop 962 St. Andrews Methodist Church has earned all 137 merit badges

"I don't think they should allow boys with the girls", Terry Delavaldene said.

Cub Scout dens will be single‐gender, either all boys or all girls.

The Boy Scouts say the move is something families have asked about for years.

However, this is not the first time the Boy Scouts of America has offered a co-ed program.

A high-school junior, Cassidy is "extremely happy" that women will have the opportunity to join the program at a younger age and work their way up to achieving Eagle Scout. I think the Boy Scout program is unique among the youth programs.

"There's always been a little bit of 'Is there anything for younger girls, ' and I think that kind of suggestion coming from families has kind of driven this conversation", said Ron Gardner, scout executive for the New Birth of Freedom Council with the Boy Scouts of America.

We are girl experts, proven by the outcomes: Girl Scouts develops positive values, a strong sense of self, healthy relationships, and a commitment to community service. Yet, Boy Scouts has been historically slow to adapt to changing cultural mores which has hurt its standing across the nation, the release points out. Girl Scouts have been in CT since 1912 - a proud history that Mary wants to see continue - independent of the boys.

"I got several phone calls and messages yesterday of people texting me, 'When can our girls start?' I was like, 'OK, hold on, '" LeMond said.

"It's kinda disappointing because one of things I really like about Girls Scouts is that it's all girls and we get to see from women leaders who have really impacted the world", says Senn. But the 21-year-old never received the same recognition as her son, now 19, who earned the Eagle Scout title. Earlier this year, the church announced that it would stop participating in two Boy Scouts programs for teenagers.

"No, sir", she said. She added that girls do better in a single-gender environment such as Girl Scouts than in co-ed environments.

"Utilizing the resources that we have already, we have the capacity to serve more kids and to bring programming, leadership development skills".

According to statistics, in the United States, 90 percent of female astronauts, 80 percent of female tech leaders, 76 percent of current senators and 50 percent of female business owners are former Girl Scouts. "It has the same benefits that the Eagle Scout Award has".
