Journey to Excellence - Be a Bronze, Silver, or Gold Unit!  Important Year-end Information To Help Unit Leaders


December brings a bit of tedious paperwork for Cub Scout packs, Boy Scout troops, and Venturing crews as they renew their annual charters for the upcoming year. This process is due, in completion, to any service center by January 15, 2014. 

An additional, very important component is the Journey to Excellence unit recognition program. Journey to Excellence (JTE) is an ongoing strategic plan to help you track quality and performance of your program.   

 Unit Scorecards:  All you have to do is fill out this form.

·         Pack Scorecard 

 If you cannot click on the direct links, visit

These scorecards can be used the way they are or you can use the help of an Excel spreadsheet that has been designed for you to plug in the data and have it output the results for you!  A sample and tutorial is below.  The spreadsheets can be HERE.

The JTE program follows the calendar year.  So even though your charter renewal is not due until Jan. 15, this is due by Jan. 1 to qualify your unit to possibly earn Bronze, Silver, or Gold recognition.


To complete the JTE Scorecard, you will find the following Journey to Excellence Scorecard Tutorial.pdf (same as shown below; but use 2013 instead of 2012) and 2013 JTE Data for Units.pdf2013 JTE Data for Units.pdf (data to use for completing the Scorecard when it says "refer to council") VERY HELPFUL!   If you think there is an error, please contact District Director Mark Hays at or 314-550-4233 and he will double check your data.
