LDS Church "Going Forward" with Alternative to Scouting for Older Teens


It's exciting to hear of progress being made for the Church's new program for young men ages 14 to 18. 

“Going forward.”

That two-word phrase summarizes the direction and momentum of the LDS Church in the 10-plus weeks since it announced plans to begin its own activity program for young men ages 14 to 18 and discontinue participation with Scouting’s Varsity and Venturing programs for those ages.

Also announced then: a continued involvement for now in the Boy Scout and Cub Scout programs for boys ages 8 through 13.
