On today’s episode, we speak with Scout Master Autumn Herod on the leadership development scouting provides to young boys and girls. Autumn has been a scoutmaster with the Girls Scouts of America and currently the Boy Scouts of America as she raises her two stepdaughters and son. Autumn is particularly excited about her upcoming female scout troop which will be aligned with a boy scout troop in February 2019. She sees a tremendous benefit of the Boy Scouts of America becoming even more inclusive and increasing the number of females involved in scouting. This February 2019 the 108-year-old organization Boy Scouts of America will officially become Scouting BSA to reflect the almost 60,000 young women’s inclusion in the organization.
