The Boy Scouts of America provides recognition for Scout achievements. The advancement program allows Scouts
to progress from rank to rank. A fundamental purpose of advancement is the self-confidence a young man acquires
from his participation in a Troop. Requirements serve as the basis for a Boy Scout's rank advancement. The four
steps to advancement are learning, testing, reviewing, and recognition. Many Scouts have been introduced to a
lifelong hobby or rewarding career through the merit badge program. Merit badges help Scouts develop physical
skills, social skills, and self-reliance.
