Great Southwest Council, Boy Scouts of America Heading

 Internet Advancement

Welcome and thank you for using Internet Advancement from the Boy Scouts of America. Internet Advancement allows you to enter youth advancements, awards, and merit badges and perform the following actions:

  • Select members from your existing roster,
  • Review, update, or add ranks, merit badges, and/or awards,
  • Access an online Review Unit Roster feature and the Unit Advancement Summary,
  • Print an Advancement Report with a Unit Awards Summary to assist in purchasing.

Before beginning Internet Advancement, collect all member information, including advancement records, award records, and merit badge applications with the appropriate signatures.  To complete Internet Advancement, you must be connected to a printer to print the final report.

Each unit selects one person who will have the log in information and be authorized to do advancement reporting for the unit. To request your Unit ID number and password to access Internet Advancement, please contact Barbara Friberg at the council service Center at 505-345-8603 ext. 110.



Note: The Eagle Rank, Meritorious Action Awards, Cub Scout Academic belt loops, pins & Sport belt loops & pins are Exempt.
