Ideal Year of Scouting

BSA Logo
Helping leaders build year-round Scouting programs designed to keep youth engaged.


Providing a year-round, quality Scouting program should be the goal of every Scouting Unit. The Ideal Year of Scouting (IYOS) helps you develop an annual program plan along with a budget and fundraising plan to reach your program goals. The result is a well-managed, well-financed Scouting Unit. Use the resources below to start your Ideal Year of Scouting today.
