Yep, there is no real coninuity in BSA. Of cousre what PER CENT
of the 18-21 year old group or 18-29 group for that matter is
really active in scouting anyway. Even with the ROVERS as a
COED program, the numbers seem small as compared to other
parts of scouting. And the OA also considers a scout as a YOUTH
til age 21, as far as holding office etc., so BSA has some
conflicts in is our guidelines. A program developed for the
over 18 years olds, may just not be cost effective?
But it sounds to me like if it was carreer or LIFE skills oreinted
with some leadership developement thrown in, it would help BSA
retain future leasders, and help young adults grow as well. Maybe
BSA will catch up to the rest of the world in the future.
