What the Advancement Program does For the Boy

A boy's experience with achievements, electives, and activity badges will do more than help build his self-reliance. It will also help him discover that he is now old enough to assume certain responsibilities toward other people. This is necessary as a foundation for good citizenship.

The advancement program gives a boy the recognition that he needs so much. Boys sometimes develop behavior problems in seeking recognition. If they receive proper recognition they might not need to do so many exasperating things in trying to gain it.

Many of the advancement projects are activities the entire family can enjoy together. This brings a boy and his family closer together.
