      Hi Trainers,

      Has anyone seen any information directly from BSA on these reported new advancement changes for 2010?

      Here are the requirement changes, remember they take effect on January 1, 2010:

      Tenderfoot
      - A Scout must teach another person how to tie a square knot using the EDGE model (explain, demonstrate, guide, and enable).
      - He must also be able to discuss four specific examples of how he lived the points of the Scout Law in his daily life.

      Second Class
      A Scout must discuss the principles of Leave No Trace and explain the factors to consider when choosing a patrol site and where to pitch a tent.
      He must explain what respect is due the flag of the United States.
      He must again discuss four examples of how he lived four different points of the Scout Law in his daily life.
      He must earn an amount of money agreed upon by the Scout and his parents and save at least 50 percent of it.

      First Class
      An additional requirement to the 10 separate troop/patrol activities states he must demonstrate the principles of Leave No Trace on these outings.
      He must discuss four more examples of how he lived the remaining four points of the Scout Law in his daily life.

      Life
      A Scout must use the EDGE model to teach a younger Scout a specified skill.

      Star, Life, and Eagle
      Troop Webmaster and Leave No Trace trainer are two new leadership positions.

              They may be in the Centennial handbook. They were released in May at
              the Annual meeting. So they have been in development for months. Plenty
              of time to get them in the printing process.

              However, they don't go into effect until January, I assume, so its not
              really necessary.

                Hi Connie,

                According to the BSA web site:

                "Rank Requirement Changes for 2010
                The centennial edition of the Boy Scout Handbook will soon be available, and with the new handbook come several rank requirement changes that will be in effect as of January 1, 2010."

                So we will know more in a few weeks when the new centennial edition is expected to arrive.
