This program mapping shows how actions, advancement and activities in the Scouts Australia program can be applied to the LDS Church [PROGRAM NAME] and vice versa. These are recommendations only and should not be considered either authoritative or complete. The new church program is open ended and family driven. This means that a family or youth could choose to complete parts of the program using scouting. The advantage here is that scouting provides activities which are age appropriate and well defined with can help youth and families in developing a program best suited for their own needs and the age of the youth.
In addition to the mappings given below we have also set out a suggested mappings for the Target and Proficiency badges used to complete the Pioneer, Explorer, and Adventurer advancements as well. See. Scouts Australia Badges page.
