www.MeritBadge.comwww.MeritBadge.com - Helping Scouts Advance - What merit badge do YOU want to earn today? Whichever one you want, MeritBadge.com can help. This immense web site started out simply, just the personal site of Michael Kauffmann, the Optimist, who decided to convert advancement information from text files to web pages to make access to the information easier. While MeritBadge.com still offers this service, the site's objectives have changed. The mission of MeritBadge.com is to provide productive tools and information which will help Scouts advance. In addition, background information is provided that can help Scouters improve their advancement program within the their Troop, District, and Council. MeritBadge.com also actively seeks out businesses and professionals in merit badge related subject areas, and promotes the development of web pages dedicated to helping Scouts earn that merit badge. As of April, 1998, there are 17 web sites devoted to helping Scouts on specific merit badges, and MeritBadge.com has hundreds of links for information related to ALL merit badge topics. If you want to advance in Scouting, www.MeritBadge.com is a great place to start.
