Tonight, the National voting members of the Boy Scouts of America passed the resolution that eliminates membership standards for youth members. The Boy Scouts of America is a youth-centered organization and the Greater New York Councils is pleased that openly gay youth can participate in Scouting’s meaningful leadership development programs across the country. This is positive step in the right direction. However, we remain extremely disappointed that the resolution did not include gay adult volunteers and we will continue to work towards a fully inclusive national policy aligned with our own. We strongly believe that both gay adults and youth must be welcomed in Scouting.
Thank you so much for your dedication to the Scouting program in the Greater New York Councils.
