Journey to Excellence is the performance measurement and recognition program for packs, troops, teams, crews, and ships in the Boy Scouts of America.  It provides a method for recognition, a framework for planning, and a source of guidance.

JTE hopes to accomplish a number of tasks for you as leaders in your unit:

  • JTE is a framework for planning for your unit and for your adult and youth leaders (if you are a troop, crew, team, or post) to use.
  • JTE is a method for evaluating your unit.
  • JTE provides an assessment of how you’re doing in the key areas found in great units.
  • JTE helps provide guidance in areas where you might do better in conjunction with advice and counsel from your commissioner.
  • JTE sets specific guidelines and standards of what the BSA considers good performance.
