Ideal Year of Scouting

Helping leaders build year-round Scouting programs designed to keep youth engaged.

Providing a year-round, quality Scouting program should be the goal of every Scouting unit. The Ideal Year of Scouting (IYOS) helps you develop an annual program plan along with a budget and fundraising plan to reach your program goals. The result is a well-managed, well-financed Scouting Unit. Use the resources below to start your Ideal Year of Scouting today.

Once your unit has completed its plan, save the file with your Unit number and upload below. Budgets and calendars are due June 30. Leadership Inventories are due Sept. 30 but can be submitted earlier. These documents are helpful for a strong unit program and will allow unit commissioners to better assist your Unit.
