Journey to Excellence 

Journey to Excellence is the Boy Scouts of America's new performance recognition program designed to encourage and reward success and measure the performance of our units, districts, and councils. It is replacing the Centennial Quality Awards Program as a means of encouraging excellence in providing a quality program at all levels of the Boy Scouts of America.
