The Building Evidence in Scouting Together Study is a national research study about Scouting. The goal is to understand how troop leader practices foster the development of Scouts in order to improve the Scouting program for youth and adults.
The Boy Scouts of America has partnered with researchers at Montclair State University (MSU) in New Jersey and the American Institutes for Research (AIR) to conduct this study.
Only select troops are being invited to participate—Scoutmasters receive an email invitation from our study team if their troop is selected.
|Study participation involves 3 steps:||Step 1: Scoutmaster registration||Step 2: Troop member registration||Step 3: Scouts and Scouters take online surveys|
