Thread: LDS Church announces split with Boy Scouts of America

    LDS Church develops new youth initiative following split from Boy Scouts

    (KUTV) -- Since the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints announced it would end its affiliation with the Boy Scouts of America (BSA), the Church has come up with a new curriculum for its youth.

    A new Children and Youth Development Initiative will begin in January 2020.

    Although there are few details about the specifics of the program, the Church has confirmed on its website that youth will continue to do camps and outdoor activities, like in they did in scouting.

    But, local church leaders, youth and parents will find and execute outdoor activities that meet the needs of the people in each particular group.

    The new initiative will focus more on learning the gospel, building relationships and strengthening faith among the youth.

    Activities that local leaders will plan will be based on needs, rather than requirements, according to lds.org.

    The decision to end the century old relationship came in 2015 after the BSA decided to allow gay troop leaders and announced last year it would allow girls in the ranks.

    The Church and the BSA released a joint statement:

    We have jointly determined that, effective on December 31, 2019, the Church will conclude its relationship as a chartered organization with all Scouting programs around the world. Until that date, to allow for an orderly transition, the intention of the Church is to remain a fully engaged partner in Scouting for boys and young men ages 8–13 and encourages all youth, families, and leaders to continue their active participation and financial support.
