Girls in Boy Scouts? What DFW scouting leaders are saying

Next year, they will start allowing girls. Starting next year, the Boy Scouts will create separate boys and girls Cub Scout "dens", the smallest unit available.

"For the boy scout age program which is 11 to 18, that will stay a single gender program", said Larry Brown.

"Boy Scouts is for the boys, and Girl Scouts is for the girls", Dlajaith Collins of Bonita Springs said.

"Girl Scouts is, and will remain, the scouting program that truly benefits US girls by providing a safe space for them to learn and lead", the Girl Scouts said in a statement.

"I just don't believe a man can build a girl the way I can build a girl and I wouldn't be able to treat a Boy Scout the way a Boy Scout leader would be able to do so", Reed-Bradix said.

We asked Girl Scout Aaliyah Bradix a simple question and got a very direct answer.

The Girl Scouts of the U.S. have also taken umbrage with the decision, claiming in a news release that fostering an all-girl environment empowers young women to turn to other women for leadership and support in ways a co-ed environment might not.

The Girl Scouts, founded in 1912, and the BSA are among several major youth organizations in the USA experiencing sharp drops in membership in recent years.

"Girls thrive better in a girl-led environment".

"Especially for boys like me who grew up in single-parent household, going to Cub Scouts, I was able to talk to my leader about stuff that I may not have been able to talk to my mom about".

"So I get how parents would say how or why can't my girl join?"

Amanda Wyckoff says it came as a shock Wednesday when the Boy Scouts of America announced it was letting girls join.

"It's really fun to be with other girls and boys", Jason's daughter Megan said.

The Boy Scouts of America says "Families today are busier and more diverse than ever".

As of 2016 there were 2.3 million boy scouts throughout the U.S. As of 2015 there were 1.8 million girl scouts.

In 2016, the Sequoyah Council bestowed him with the Silver Buffalo Award, the highest commendation given by the Boy Scouts of America.

Former Girl Scout Stacy Rains disagrees, saying the change is an attempt to increase revenue.

Bozzi said his troop has averaged about 50 boys over the last five years. "They might want a different option", said Trista Chickeletti of Scranton.

The move follows years of receiving requests from families and girls, the organisation with almost 2.3 million members between the ages of 7 and 21 announced.

"Boys and girls are the same".
