Get Started: Youth Scouts

The Boy Scouts of America and The Duke of Edinburgh’s International Award USA share a common interest in youth development through programs of self-discovery, adventure and service.

In December 2017, the two organizations established a national partnership, encouraging The Award and and Scout programs across the USA to collaborate to serve young people.


Interested In Participating?



As a Scout, there are two ways you can participate in The Award program. You can engage in the Award through your Council (if they are licensed) or as a Virtual Award Participant (join the waitlist). Please look below to find out more about the two options.
