Let youth female Boy Scouts into the Order of the Arrow!
As of October 11, 2017, the Boy Scouts of America made history as they finally announced that they would be allowing girls into their program in 2018, and letting girls earn the rank of Eagle Scout (the highest rank a Boy Scout can earn) in 2019. We've been fighting for this for over 4 years now and I am jubilant that it is happening, however, we still have a long way to go.
The Order of the Arrow is a Boy Scout Honor Society that is youth led and recognizes Scouts who go above and beyond in service and leadership. The problem with this is that girls cannot be initiated into the OA until they are 21, when they are considered adults in the Boy Scouts. This is unfair to youth girls who put a lot of time and effort into scouting and helping others because they deserve a chance to be members of the OA as a youth. If we are going to let girls into the Boy Scout program as Boy Scouts, we should also let them be apart of all the things Boy Scouts have an opportunity to partake in. So let's raise awareness on this issue and hopefully get this rule changed so that young girls like me,Sydney, and thousands of other girls can do what they've always wanted to do!
