The front page of the National Council Website is sporting a new look. The first thing you will notice is a more bold color scheme which gives the site a more patriotic feel.
The new design puts more of an emphasis on the feature stories. Currently the feature stories are: Values of Scouting, January 2009, Boy’s Life – Smoking Stinks Video Contest, February Cubcast – When I Grow Up, Song Leading, Scouting Alumni – Reconnect with other BSA alumni, and ArrowCorps5 – BSA’s Largest National Service Project since WWII.
The old site had also featured three blocks on the right side that explained Cub Scouting, Boy Scouting, and Venturing that are now gone. They have been replaced with two paragraphs of text:
The Boy Scouts of America is one of the nation’s largest and most prominent values-based youth development organizations. The BSA provides a program for young people that builds character, trains them in the responsibilities of participating citizenship, and develops personal fitness.
For nearly a century, the BSA has helped build the future leaders of this country by combining educational activities and lifelong values with fun. The Boy Scouts of America believes — and through nearly a century of experience, knows — that helping youth is a key to building a more conscientious, responsible, and productive society.
