BSA Strategic Plan

Pursuing Excellence Together

The BSA’s professionals and volunteers — and their passions for the aims and goals of Scouting — are our greatest resources.

Key Categories for Growth

  • Membership – Our goal is to expand Scouting programs to our nation’s youth.

  • People – Our organization is a reflection of the communities we serve.

  • Culture – We recognize that people are our greatest resource – we are united in our passion for the Scouting program.

  • IT infrastructure – We must leverage technology to enable growth.

  • Finance – We must maintain the financial health of the organization.

  • High Adventure properties – We must communicate to local councils the life-changing activities available at our High-Adventure bases that cannot be experienced anyplace else.

Sample Strategic Plans

The BSA does not have a standard template for a strategic plan. Some councils continue to use the plan created by OnStrategy, while others have developed their own. The samples below are from different councils that you may use as a guide to assist you with the development of your strategic plan. If you have any questions, please contact the Council Management Support team.
