Journey to Excellence
Deptford Cub Scout Pack 62 is going strong! For the last FOUR years (2013-2016), our Pack earned the Journey to Excellence Award!
“Scouting’s Journey to Excellence" is the BSA’s council performance recognition program designed to encourage and reward success and measure the performance of units, districts, and councils. It replaces the Centennial Quality Awards program as a means of encouraging excellence in providing a quality program at all levels of the BSA.
Starting in January 2011, a new quality program called Journey to Excellence (JTE or sometimes J2E) has become the new national performance assessment,communication, and recognition program for units, as well as for councils and districts.
Many additional details are available on the BSA page.
The award patch is displayed on the uniform's right sleeve below the patrol emblem or den numeral. Only the most recent year's patch is worn, not a string of past year patches.
The Journey to Excellence program provides:
Ø A framework for planning the year
Ø A method for evaluating a unit
Ø Guidance in areas where a unit might do better
Ø Specific guidelines and standards of what is considered good performance
Ø Early warning of potential problem areas
Ø Recognition for good Scouting
Ø Benchmarking to get ideas and tips from other good units
