Prepared. For Life.
Reporting advancement is a requirement of the Boy Scouts of America. Internet Advancement makes this a simple process. Cascade Pacific wants to be the first to reach 100 percent of their units using this functionality. Internet advancement is the same concept as troop or pack master but their is no cost and the information reflects exactly what we have in our official records per individual.
Internet Advancement allows you to enter youth advancements, awards, merit badges, and perform the following actions:
- Select members from your existing roster.
Contact your local council office to access your unit ID, reset password and personal information, or with any questions regarding the internet advancement application via (503) 226-3423.
Internet Advancement Highlights
188.8.131.52 Benefits of Internet Advancement
When Internet Advancement is used to comply with reporting responsibilities, it alleviates issues in documenting progress as Scouts submit Eagle applications or transfer from one unit to another. Consistent and constant reporting also assures accurate records for use by commissioners, other district and council volunteers, and the NationalCouncil. These are critical in evaluating unit health, adjusting service delivery, and researching changes in programs and requirements.

Internet Advancement is accessed through the local council's website or from MyScouting. When first-time unit processors enter, they are greeted by a welcome page with instructions and invited to log in and accept a confidentiality agreement. Once they have provided some registration information, they move to an overview page with additional instructions. Returning users skip these steps and go directly to selecting members for advancement. Once this is done and verified, an advancement report is printed, signed, and forwarded to the local council as awards are purchased.
Because unit advancement processors access data directly from ScoutNET, deciphering handwriting is not an issue. The system also validates entries against advancement rules and generates error messages as appropriate. Errors must be corrected before the process can proceed.
