The Boy Scouts provides a series of surmountable obstacles and steps in overcoming them through the advancement method. A Scout plans his/her advancement and progresses at his/her own pace as he/she meets each challenge. The Scout is rewarded for each achievement, which helps him/her gain self-confidence. The steps in the advancement system help a Scout grow in self-reliance and in the ability to help others.
In this advancement section you will find many useful links. Some of the documents found here have been created by other creative Scouters that you may find useful. Please keep in mind that only official BSA North Florida Council and National forms may be submitted for any advancement approval. Also, always check that you have the most recent printing of the documents you are going to summit.
If you have a question about an advancement issue, you should begin with your Unit Advancement Chair. The next step would be your District Advancement Chair. If you still need clarification then you can contact Council Advancemtn Chariman Ed Keily at firstname.lastname@example.org
