 IMPORTANT INFORMATION ON ADULT LEADERSHIP POLICY CHANGE

On Monday, July 27, the National Executive Board ratified a resolution that removes the national restriction on openly gay adult leaders and employees. The resolution was recommended for ratification by the Executive Committee earlier this month. Of those present and voting, 79 percent voted in favor of the resolution.

Watch the video below to hear the important message from Dr. Robert M. Gates on the adult leadership policy change and read his remarks here.


We understand this change may generate discussion and questions among your important audiences—volunteers, chartered organizations, friends, and others. To assist you in these discussions, read on to understand five key facts about adult leadership standards.

  1. The National Executive Board ratified a resolution that removes the national restriction on openly gay adult leaders and employees. The resolution is effective immediately.
  1. Chartered organizations will continue to select their adult leaders. Religious chartered organizations may continue to use religious beliefs as criteria for selecting adult leaders, including matters of sexuality.
  1. Scouting’s members and parents may continue to select local units, chartered to organizations with similar beliefs, that best meet the needs of their families.
  1. The youth membership policy adopted in 2013 is not affected by this resolution and remains unchanged.
  1. The ideals and principles of “duty to God” and “a Scout is reverent” set forth in the Scout Oath and Scout Law remain central to Scouting.
